Comedian Rory McGrath has been cautioned over three assaults in Cornwall.

McGrath, who is also a writer, television panellist and presenter, was arrested last May.

Devon and Cornwall Police said: "A 57-year-old man from the Cambridge area was cautioned in relation to three offences of assault by beating."

McGrath was arrested by police called to a house in Pool, near Redruth, on 10 May.

At the time, the force said a man had assaulted a male and female couple "who it is understood, were attempting to assist this man who was heavily in drink".

"A man in his late 40s received a bloody nose and scratches to the face."
