Former Premier League footballer Marlon King today pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to dangerous driving after a three-car crash left a motorist with a fractured elbow.

King, of Torksey, Lincolnshire, was due to go on trial at Nottingham Crown Court today after pleading not guilty to a charge of dangerous driving at an earlier hearing.

The footballer, who appeared in the dock wearing a blue suit and open-necked white shirt, changed his plea to one of guilty to the charge this morning.

The striker, who has played for Nottingham Forest, Coventry City and Birmingham City, faces a maximum sentence of two years' imprisonment.
