Premier League footballer Andy Carroll was whisked from West Ham ‘s training ground back to court – after a last-minute request for him to give further evidence in the trial of a man accused of trying to rob him of his £22,000 watch.

Police escorted the 6ft 4in striker from the club’s training ground to Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on the eve of transfer deadline day.

The unexpected move came a day after the star footballer gave his main evidence in person at Basildon Crown Court.

Carroll then told Basildon Crown Court that a male motorcyclist, who, he believed, had a gun, demanded he hand over his watch as he drove his green Jeep Wrangler home from training.

Jack O’Brien, 22, denies attempting to rob the England-capped 28-year-old on November 2 2016.
