Soccer star arrested after crash

A Championship footballer has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after a three-car smash near Newark which left a man with serious injuries.

Birmingham City striker Marlon King, 33, who has previously played for both Leeds United and Hull City on loan, was released on police bail last night pending further inquiries into the crash in Winthorpe.

A 35-year-old man was airlifted to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre from the scene of the crash on the A46/A17 interchange.

Porsche, a Volkswagen Polo and a Vauxhall Astra were involved in the incident at 2.50pm yesterday.
