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.

"Earlier this evening, a sixth man was arrested in Cheshire, aged 21 years. He will be taken back to Cornwall where he will be formally interviewed."

On Sunday, a spokesman for the football club tonight confirmed Crewe players were being held.
