Colchester: Peter Shilton On Drink-Drive Charge

Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton will appear in court later this month after being arrested for drink-driving in Colchester.

The 63-year-old was arrested outside the home of a female friend in Manor Road on February 24 after being found to be driving with excess alcohol in his system.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "A 63-year-old man will appear at Colchester Magistrates' Court on March 19.''
