A Newcastle United footballer has been arrested in connection with a late-night assault on a woman.

Police were called to Pudding Chare, near the Bigg Market in the early hours of 14 September.

Striker Andy Carroll was arrested. The 19-year-old later accepted a police caution.

The England under-19 footballer has not yet scored in a competitive fixture for Newcastle but is reported to be sought after by other clubs.

A Northumbria police spokeswoman said: "On Sunday 14 September police were called to the Pudding Chare to a report that a woman had been assaulted.

"Officers attended and a 19-year-old man was arrested and later accepted a police caution for assault."
