Paul Gascoigne 'sorry for actions'

Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne has been fined £1,000 for assaulting a railway guard and being drunk and disorderly.

Appearing before magistrates in Stevenage, he admitted attacking Jack Sherrington at the Hertfordshire town's railway station on 4 July.

Assault charges relating to his ex-wife Sheryl Gascoigne, 47, were withdrawn.

The 46-year-old former footballer, who has battled alcoholism for many years, was treated at a clinic in Arizona earlier in the year.

Speaking outside court, solicitor Gavin Harris said that Mr Gascoigne's wanted to publically apologise for his actions and "now wishes to be left alone to carry on with his recovery".
