Henson questioned over “rowdy behaviour”

Wales rugby star Gavin Henson has apologised after train passengers accused him and a group of friends of being “rowdy”.

The Ospreys star, 25, was returning from his club’s victory over Harlequins in London on Sunday when passengers reported the group became disruptive. Henson scored all of his teams points which saw his team reach the EDF Energy cup semi-final.

Transport police said they questioned four men after the train arrived in Cardiff. They were not arrested while the club blamed high spirits and the group apologised for its behaviour.

A British Transport Police spokesman told the BBC “At 21:25 GMT on Sunday 2nd December, a group of men were reported to be behaving rowdily on a train from London to Swansea. They were met by British Transport Police officers at Cardiff Central.

“A man aged 25 from Wick, a man aged 26 and a man aged 33 from Bridgend and a man aged 25 from St Brides Major were spoken to. All four men are helping police with inquiries.”

An Ospreys’ spokesman said: “After playing a crucial part in what proved to be a particularly satisfying victory for the Ospreys on Sunday afternoon, Gavin made the return journey from London via train with friends who had attended the match in support of the Ospreys.

“Spirits were high amongst the group given the nature of the victory, and the group apologises for any inconvenience caused to fellow passengers.”

Henson lives in the Vale of Glamorgan with his girlfriend Charlotte Church who is a singer and their new-born baby daughter Ruby Megan.
