England's most capped footballer Peter Shilton has been charged with drinking and driving.

The 63-year-old, of Kenilworth in Warwickshire, was arrested in Manor Road in Colchester on 24 February.

Mr Shilton, whose partner is understood to live in Colchester, was charged with driving with excess alcohol.

The legendary keeper, who started his career at Leicester City, is expected to appear before Colchester magistrates on 19 March.

Mr Shilton was sold to Stoke by Leicester for a then world-record fee for a goalkeeper, and went on to play for a number of teams during his 30-year career.
