Liam Gallagher has been questioned by police after The Sun published CCTV footage which the newspaper alleged showed him assaulting girlfriend Debbie Gwyther.

Both Gallagher and Gwyther denied on social media that an assault had taken place at London’s Chiltern Firehouse restaurant, claims which prompted The Sun to publish the footage. Police have now confirmed that an unnamed man, believed to be Gallagher, was questioned last month.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers are aware of footage of an incident consistent with assault believed to have taken place in August 2018 at a licensed venue in Chiltern Street, Marylebone. The footage has been assessed and inquiries will be made into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident. No specific allegations have been received at this time”.

While no arrest was made, Gallagher is still waiting to hear if the matter will be taken further.
