THE investigation into an alleged assault in Clitheroe involving former Manchester United manager David Moyes ‘is likely to take some time’ according to police.

Mr Moyes, 51, was allegedly involved in an assault last week outside The Emporium in Moor Lane. The alleged victim is Josh Gillibrand, 23, from St Peter’s Close, Salesbury. A police spokeswoman said: “We continue to make inquiries into these matters but our investigation is likely to take some time as we have a number of people to speak to. No arrests have been made at this stage.” It is understood that Mr Moyes had been socialising in the bar with Blackburn Rovers managing director Derek Shaw, who was on the board at Preston North End when Mr Moyes was in charge.
