Corrie Star Attacked On Night Out

Corrie star Mikey North, Gary Windass in the ITV1 soap, has been brutally attacked by two thugs as he made his way home from a nightclub.
The 22 year old was left covered in blood on the pavement after the thugs attacked him from behind. The attackers are believed to have goaded him about his role in the ITV1 soap just before the attack. The star is said to have suffered serious facial injuries including a broken jaw and it is believe he needed emergency surgery following the brutal beating. Street bosses meanwhile are worried he will not be able to return to filming for several weeks.

The star was in his hometown of Scarborough, North Yorks for Easter when the attack took place.

Speaking of the attack a Corrie spokesman said “There was an incident at the weekend which resulted in Mikey North sustaining facial injuries. He was treated in hospital and the matter is now in the hands of the police.”

A North Yorkshire police spokesman said “A 19 year old male has been arrested in connection with the incident. He has been released on bail while police enquires continue.”
