Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole was arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly in the early hours of Thursday morning, sources have told the Press Association.

The 28-year-old left-back was arrested in Brompton Road, South Kensington, at about 2.15am on Thursday.

He was taken to a central London police station and issued a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly before being released shortly after 5.30am.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "We can confirm a 28-year-old man was arrested at approximately 2.15am in Brompton Road on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly.

"He was taken to a central London police station where he was issued with a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly and released shortly after 5.30am."

A member of staff at the Collection nightclub in Brompton Road said she was not able to comment on reports Cole was arrested when he swore at police after emerging from the club.
