The former England footballer, 44, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving, common assault and criminal damage.

He is also suspected of a public order offence and has been released while inquiries continue, police said.

Officers responded at 20:45 GMT to a disturbance at a home on Victory Boulevard in Lytham, said Lancashire Police.

A man had already left the property in a car.

A police spokesman added: "A short time later, officers found the vehicle which had been involved in a collision with a woman pedestrian on Clifton Drive. She received minor injuries."
