West Ham skipper Nolan dismisses Carroll incident

West Ham United skipper Kevin Nolan has rubbished accusations made against teammate Andy Carroll.

The Daily Mail says the striker was accused of assaulting a photographer during the squad's Christmas party.

The £35million England star, on loan at Upton Park from Liverpool, has found himself in hot-water after the incident outside a nightclub in Dublin in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Nolan, who joined Carroll on a trip to Whipps Cross Hospital in Essex on Tuesday to hand out presents to sick children, said: "Someone is trying to fabricate a story and that is the disappointing thing. It is part and parcel of what we do and we understand that.

"We have had a fantastic weekend away and you think you have come back with no problems but someone has made something which was nothing as far as I was aware."
