WATCH: Cops investigating Everton keeper Pickford pub incident

Northumbria Police are investigating an incident involving Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in his native Sunderland which erupted in the early hours of Monday morning.

Pickford was filmed swinging punches when a pub row escalated.

It's alleged his fiancee was the target of abuse which led to Pickford losing control. He began trading punches as video footage, recorded on a mobile phone, showed him being pulled away from the bust-up.

He was eventually restrained by three men and led away. Nobody is believed to have been hurt in the incident. Northumbria Police confirmed on Monday night that they are investigating the disturbance.
