Former Blackburn Rovers and Scotland footballer Colin Hendry has been given a warning by Lancashire Police for allegedly harassing his ex-girlfriend.

Mr Hendry, 49, from Lytham reportedly pestered beautician Sarah Kinder after their relationship broke down.

The warning does not count as a criminal record but runs for 12 months to deter an individual from future conduct causing distress.

A police spokesman said a harassment warning was given to a man aged 49.

Mr Hendry had been in a relationship with Ms Kinder after the death of his wife Denise, 42, in 2009 following cosmetic surgery.

He is due to appear at Blackpool Magistrates' Court on 4 March to face a drink-driving charge.

The central defender captained his country and played in both the 1996 European Championship and the World Cup two years later.

Hendry was also a member of the Blackburn side which won the Premier League title in 1994-95.

Since then he has managed Blackpool and Clyde.
