THE brother of football star Ryan Giggs was arrested after a fight broke out at a charity event organised by the Manchester United player.

Rhodri Giggs was quizzed by police and released on bail after the fracas at the De Vere Belfry Hotel, near Birmingham.

A 33-year-old Londoner suffered injuries to his nose in the brawl but didn't need to go to hospital.

Police were called in the early hours of yesterday and Rhodri, 30, who plays for breakaway club FC United, was arrested.

The black-tie fundraiser raised nearly £200,000 for the £1m Five Stars scanner appeal for the New Manchester Children's Hospital and was organised by Ryan and Hotel Babylon actor Max Beesley.

Stars at the £200-a-head black-tie dinner included Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin.

They were not involved in the alleged incident.
