Paul Gascoigne was given a helping hand when his car got stuck in the snow after leaving Newcastle Magistrates Court.

The 43-year-old was given an eight-week sentence, suspended for a year after he admitted driving while more than four times over the legal limit.

The Former England star was given a lift home by his lawyer when the vehicle they were travelling in got stuck in heavy snow.

Two BBC journalists ended up pushing the car out of the snow.
