Pop star Lily Allen has been questioned by police over an alleged assault on a photographer outside a nightclub.

The 22-year-old singer attended a police station in central London by appointment on Thursday.

She was freed on police bail after she was quizzed about an alleged assault on a male photographer in his 40s near the Wardour club in London's Soho in March.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said a woman arrested over an alleged assault had been bailed to return in late July.

Ms Allen built up a following via her MySpace page before releasing her debut single, Smile, which topped the chart last July.

The star, daughter of actor Keith Allen, recently performed on the main stage for crowds at the Glastonbury Festival.
