Seven footballers have been arrested and released on bail in connection with an alleged sex attack in Redruth.

Devon and Cornwall Police tell us it happened at a house in the early hours of Saturday morning and the victim is in her 20s.

The players from Cheshire Club Crewe Alexandra were on a pre-season training camp.

A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman confirmed the arrests: "At 4.30am [Saturday], police in Redruth received a complaint of sexual assault against a woman aged in her early 20s.

"The incident is alleged to have occurred at a property in Redruth. As a result of inquiries, five men aged 35, 19, 18 and two aged 24 were arrested in connection with the incident. They remain in custody centres in Camborne and Newquay.
