Police are investigating an alleged attack on Coronation Street‘s Mikey North which left him with a broken jaw.

The 22-year-old – who plays bad boy Gary Windass in the soap – needed emergency surgery following the incident in the early hours of Saturday, April 11.

A spokesman for the soap said: “There was an incident at the weekend which resulted in Mikey North sustaining facial injuries – he was treated in hospital and the matter is now in the hands of the police.”

It is understood the trouble started when the actor was walking home from a club in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, after a night out with his girlfriend and some friends.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “A 19-year-old male has been arrested in connection with the incident. He has been released on bail while police inquiries continue.”

The actor’s condition is being monitored by Coronation Street bosses and scenes he was due to film this week have had to be re-jigged.
