FORMER Manchester United manager David Moyes is being investigated by Lancashire police over an allegation of assault following an incident in a wine bar.

Moyes has been reported to police for allegedly assaulting a 23-year-old man in a bar in Lancashire, according to reports.

Moyes had been drinking at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe when the alleged incident occurred at 10pm on Wednesday evening.

Lancashire Constabulary said in a statement:
“Police are investigating a report of an assault at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe.

Officers attended the bar at about 10pm yesterday (Wednesday, May 21st) and it was reported that a 23 year old local man had been assaulted by a 51-year-old man. He did not require hospital treatment.

Inquiries are ongoing and we are speaking to a number of people to try to establish the circumstances.

There are a number of differing accounts which we need to work through to try to establish exactly what has happened.

No-one has been arrested at this stage.”
Moyes, 51, was sacked as Manchester United manager with four games remaining of last season after a disastrous first year in charge of the club.
