A FORMER Blackpool FC manager was arrested on suspicion of assault.

Colin Hendry, 46, was arrested at his home, in Lytham, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “A 46-year-old man was released without charge a few hours later.”

Mr Hendry, who captained Scotland at the 1998 World Cup, was declared bankrupt by Blackpool County Court in 2010 - a year after the death of his wife Denise.
