Hull boss Brown: Son arrested on suspicion of drug possession

Hull boss Phil Brown is determined to focus on keeping the Tigers in the Premiership despite the distractions of his son's arrest on suspicion of drug possession. Mr Brown said the arrest was a "personal family matter", and told the Hull Daily Mail: "My focus of attention is 100% on Hull City staying in the Premier League.

"I am a strong enough character to get through whatever is thrown at me. I appreciate the concerns but I will stress again I am fully focused on my job at Hull City."

The Sun reported that Jamie, 25, was arrested for possession of cocaine after being found slumped outside a nightclub.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said the arrest took place in Ocean Road, South Shields, on Saturday night.

"At around 10.30pm on Saturday April 25, police in South Tyneside arrested a 25-year-old man for possession of a controlled drug," he said.

"He later received a caution."
