Drink-drive probe for WBA star

By Pat Hurst

Premier League football star Saido Berahino is to be questioned by police after being arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.

The West Brom striker was stopped for travelling at "high speed" on a motorway.

The 21-year-old was interviewed and bailed and must go back to a police station to speak again with officers next month following his arrest near Lymm in Cheshire last month.

Cheshire Police said a car was stopped on the M6 on October 22 at around 3.39am.

Rising star Berahino escaped his war-torn African homeland of Burundi at the age of 10 to start a new life with his refugee mother in Birmingham. He was called up to the England squad this month.
