No-one was injured but the star, real name Stephen Manderson, was arrested and questioned at a police station where he was bailed to return later this month.

A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said: "Inquiries into the circumstances of the robbery and collision are ongoing."

Green was due to play 12 dates in November but has said recuperating from a recent car accident has not left him with time to work on his new album.
