Former England star Gascoigne cops assault fine

Former England star Paul Gascoigne has been fined £1,000 for assaulting a railway security guard and being drunk and disorderly, reports BBC News. Appearing before magistrates in Stevenage, he admitted attacking Jack Sherrington at the Hertfordshire town's railway station on 4 July.

Assault charges relating to his ex-wife Sheryl Gascoigne were withdrawn.

The attack on Mr Sherrington took place weeks after the ex-Newcastle, Tottenham and Rangers star left rehab in the USA.

The 46-year-old, who has battled alcoholism for many years, was treated at a clinic in Arizona.

He was travelling from Newcastle to London King's Cross after visiting his sick father, but got off the train at Stevenage.
