Troubled Paul Gascoigne is sectioned
Monday 02 June 2008
Former England footballer Paul Gascoigne has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, police said today.
A Hertfordshire force spokesman said: "Police were called just after 12.30pm on Sunday following a report that a 42-year-old man had approached a member of the public who was unknown to him, appearing unwell and in an agitated state in Hemel Hempstead.
"Officers arrived and accompanied the man to hospital so he could be checked over.
"He was sectioned under the Mental Health Act."
The troubled ex-footballer was previously sectioned under the Act in February.
He spent more than a fortnight at Middleton St George Hospital, in Darlington, Co Durham, before being released.
