N-Dubz rapper Dappy has been arrested on suspicion of affray following a fight at a petrol station which left three men with serious facial injuries.

The singer, whose real name is Costadinos Contostavlos, was taken into custody along with another man after an incident on the forecourt of the Shell garage in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, in the early hours of February 28.

Dappy and a 27-year-old man allegedly approached two girls and three men and asked the girls to go with them.

When they refused, one of the rejected men allegedly spat at one of the girls.

A fight then allegedly broke out between Dappy and his friend and another group of up to six men.

Dappy, who performs in N-Dubz alongside his cousin and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos, and Richard "Fazer" Rawson, has recently seen success as a solo artist and recorded with Queen guitarist Brian May.
