Paul Gascoigne apologises for his actions after admitting a charge of common assault at Stevenage Magistrates' Court.

England legend Paul Gascoigne has apologised for his actions after admitting to one charge of common assault at Stevenage Magistrates' Court.

The 46-year-old was fined £1,245 after telling the court that he grabbed the throat of a ticket collector while drunk during an incident at the Stevenage railway on July 4.

Solicitor Gavin Harris told reporters: "Mr Gascoigne has asked me to say a few words on his behalf. Mr Gascoigne wants to publicly apologise for his actions that evening. He now wishes to be left alone to carry on with his recovery."

A second charge of common assault, which related to an alleged attack on Gascoigne's ex-wife Sheryl, was dropped.
