National League side Torquay United have suspended defender James Hurst over an alleged incident in the town centre on Saturday evening.

The 23-year-old former England Under-20 international is the club's leading scorer this season, with seven goals in 17 matches.

Torquay's league match against Wrexham on Saturday was called off because of a waterlogged pitch.

The club say Hurst has been suspended pending an investigation.

No further details have been disclosed.
