Police have questioned Liam Gallagher over the alleged assault of his girlfriend Debbie Gwyther.

Gallagher denied claims that he assaulted Gwyther by grabbing her by the throat as a tabloid newspaper leaked footage, “I have never put my hands on any woman in a vicious manner,” the former Oasis frontman tweeted at the time of the incident.

Gallagher’s denial was also echoed by his partner, Gwyther, who said: “Thanks for the kind words but you’ll be pleased to know it’s fake news. I can’t comment more than that as we are taking legal action,” she added.

However, a spokeswoman for London’s Metropolitan Police has said that an investigation is underway: “Officers are aware of footage of an incident consistent with assault believed to have taken place in August 2018.”

The police spokesman continued: “The footage has been assessed and inquiries will be made into the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident… No specific allegations have been received at this time.”
