AN ex-Blackpool afootballer was arrested on suspicion of assaulting paramedics outside a city centre club.

Adam Hammill, 24, was quizzed by detectives on suspicion of assault after an incident outside Revolution in Liverpool city centre in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Hammill, who is on loan at Huddersfield Town from Wolverhampton Wanderers, was released on bail pending further inquiries.

Former England under-21 international Hammill is an ex-Liverpool FC youth player and had loan spells at Dunfermline, Southampton and Blackpool before being sold to Barnsley in 2009.

A North West Ambulance Service spokesman said a member of one of their crews was “assaulted” after being called to the bar on Liverpool’s Temple Court at around 3.40am on Sunday morning.

He added: “This type of incident is unacceptable.”

A Merseyside Police spokesman said: “A 24-year-old man from Bootle was arrested on suspicion of common assault in the early hours of Sunday, October 7.

“The man was released on police bail on Sunday night pending further enquiries.”

Nigel Clibbens, chief executive of Huddersfield Town FC, added: “We have been made aware of an incident which has taken place in Merseyside involving Adam Hammill.”
