Comedian Rory McGrath has been cautioned by police over a drunken assault against a couple near Redruth in Cornwall. The 57-year-old was accused of attacking a man and a woman who were trying to help him while he was "heavily in drink", according to police.
The man, in his late 40s, suffered a bloody nose and a scratched face, and McGrath was subsequently arrested. The cautions mean no further action will be taken against McGrath, but police say there was enough evidence to charge him.
