Ricky Hatton is to be investigated by police after he was filmed allegedly snorting cocaine in a hotel room well on a night out with a friend. The former two-weight world champion boxer was socialising with his friend Emma Bowe, who is an Irish national senior women's boxing champion when he was caught on camera.

Hatton admitted himself into a rehabilitation clinic on Monday, with Max Clifford – his spokesman – saying that he has suffered from depression and had problems with drink for ‘several weeks’.

‘Police in Trafford are aware of the allegations made against Mr Hatton and are looking into the matter,’ said a spokesman for Greater Manchester Police. ‘Greater Manchester Police acknowledges that Mr Hatton has voluntarily entered rehabilitation and the force will respect his privacy.

‘Once his rehabilitation has been completed, officers will be speaking to Mr Hatton about the allegations.’
