Seven Crewe Alexandra players were arrested and released on bail for their involvement in a case of alleged sexual assault.

An incident regarding a woman in her early 20s was reported to police in Redruth, Cornwall, where the League One club have been preparing for the new season at a training camp.

A spokesman for the club told the Daily Mail: "I can confirm some players have been arrested.

"From what we know there are three arrested and two helping with inquiries over an alleged sexual assault. The details are a bit sketchy so we can't really comment at the moment."

The group has been told to return to the police station between September 30 and October 8.
