Gascoigne was taken into custody in the early hours of the morning following a disturbance in the Jesmond area of Newcastle.

Gascoigne, 42, who has faced a long battle with alcohol, was arrested at about 2.15am after police arrived at Jesmond Park West.

He was later taken to a police station before receiving a fixed penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live's Victoria Derbyshire he had been clean of drink or drugs for four months, working the 12 steps programme and attending alcoholics anonymous.

Gascoigne was sectioned three times under the mental health act last year.

He has, according to the Mirror, only got £250,000 left from his £14m fortune.
