Surrey Police have confirmed that they will investigate claims that Chelsea FC footballer Ashley Cole shot a 21-year-old intern with a .22 air rifle.

It is alleged that Cole did not know the firearm was loaded and later apologised to Tom Cowan, who was reportedly treated for his injuries by medical staff at the football club.

A Surrey police spokesman said: "We can confirm that, while no direct allegation has been made to Surrey police, the matter has been brought to our attention through reports in the media, and we will be contacting the club in due course to establish whether any criminal offence has been committed."

Amid reports that Cole had received a "dressing down" following the incident, an official statement from Chelsea read: "We have fully investigated the incident and we are taking appropriate action. We will not be commenting further as it is an internal matter."
