Pop star George Michael was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs after a passer-by called the police on seeing saw the singer slumped in his car near Hyde Park Corner in London early on Saturday.

Officers from Scotland Yard arrived and searched him. They reportedly found two packets which they suspected may have contained cannabis and GHB, known as liquid ecstasy.

Michael was questioned about the packets and arrested on suspicion of possessing Class C drugs. He was later bailed and asked to return to a police station next month.

Michael was checked by paramedics but did not need hospital treatment.
