British actor/comedian Alan Davies has been quizzed by police over allegations of assault.

The Jonathan Creek star was accused of grabbing climbing instructor Eamonn O'Connor "by the throat" following an incident at a leisure centre in North London in October (14).

According to Britain's Sun on Sunday newspaper, Davies had left the scene by the time police officers arrived, so he was later questioned under caution for common assault.

Authorities have since concluded that no further action will be taken.
