Rapper Dizzee Rascal has been arrested in south-east London following an alleged incident involving a baseball bat, police have said.

The Mercury Prize winner, whose real name is Dylan Mills, was held on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon in Sevenoaks Way, Orpington.

The alleged incident happened at about 1530 GMT on Friday.

Mr Mills, 24, was released on bail to return to a south London police station later in December, police said.

A spokesman for the rapper refused to comment on the incident.
