Ex-Man Utd boss Moyes in clear over wine bar altercation

Former Manchester United boss David Moyes will not face any action police said after he was investigated over an alleged bar-room bust-up. The fiery Scot was spoken to by police after claims made by builder Josh Gillibrand that he had been attacked at a wine bar in Clitheroe, Lancs.

Officers were called to the upmarket Emporium bar in the rural market town following a report of the altercation on the evening of May 21.

It is understood Moyes had been socialising with his friend, Blackburn Rovers managing director Derek Shaw, a local businessman in the Ribble Valley.

Lancashire Police has confirmed no further action will be taken against any party.

A spokesman said: "After careful consideration of all the circumstances in this case it has been decided that no further action will be taken against anyone.

"A thorough investigation has been carried out and everyone identified as having been involved in this incident or having witnessed it have provided accounts to the police.

"All these accounts were given voluntarily, it has not been necessary to arrest any person. These accounts have been considered and it has been decided that this is the most appropriate course of action."
