Jamie Carragher: Police speak to driver who filmed spitting incident


Carragher sorry for ‘awful behaviour’

Greater Manchester Police have spoken to the motorist who filmed Jamie Carragher spitting towards his car while both were driving on Saturday.

Enquiries are continuing but it is understood both Carragher’s actions and the filming of the incident while driving could be punishable.

Former Liverpool defender Carragher, 40, has apologised and been suspended by Sky Sports for whom he is a pundit.

The incident occurred after Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Manchester United.

Carragher, who has yet to be contacted by police, said he was “goaded three/four times while being filmed” but that there was “no excuse”.

Greater Manchester Police said on Monday they were not investigating the incident, and had received no complaint from the man driving the car.

But after the video was obtained by the Mirror and was widely distributed, police contacted the man who filmed the incident.

Andy Hughes, 42, from North Wales has told the Mirror he has received death threats
