Henson denies charges

Wales and Ospreys Rugby player Gavin Henson has been charged with disorderly conduct over allegations of drunken antics on a train last week but he denies that he is guilty.

Three friends who were with Henson, 25, at the time of the alleged incident between London and Cardiff are also being summoned and will appear at Cardiff Magistrates’ Court on January 14.

The controversial rugby star recently had a child with singer Charlotte Church is also facing a separate investigation from the Ospreys.

A British Transport Police (BTP) statement released earlier said: “Four men are to be prosecuted for public order offences following a disturbance on the 19.37 First Great Western London Paddington to Cardiff train.”

It named the four men as Henson, from St Brides Major; Jamie Mark Griffiths, 26, and David Norman, 33, both from Bridgend; and Matthew Rhys Williams, 25, from Wick.

Later today a spokesman for the Ospreys told Sky that Henson denies the charge and would not be facing disciplinary action from the club.

“Gavin vehemently denies the charge and the Ospreys are fully in support of him in this matter,” he said.
