Former Chester City Football Club owner Stephen Vaughan has been charged with causing grievous bodily harm after a police officer was attacked in Wirral.

The officer was treated for a fractured cheekbone after being struck at the Jug and Bottle hotel in Heswall, Wirral.

Police said he had been investigating reports of a disturbance on 4 April.

Mr Vaughan, his 25-year-old son - also called Stephen - and Paul Garner, 29, from Millfield, Neston, have been charged with section 18 assaults.

Father and son, of Thurstaston Road, Heswall, and Mr Garner will appear at Wirral Magistrates' Court on 26 May.

Stephen Vaughan, 48, took over as chairman and majority shareholder of Chester City FC in 2001, but the club was wound up last month over an outstanding tax bill.

Stephen Vaughan junior is a former captain of the club who now plays for Liverpool club Marine FC.
