West Ham Footballer Remanded In Custody

Premier League footballer Ravel Morrison has been remanded in custody after being charged with assaulting two women in Manchester.

The West Ham midfielder is alleged to have attacked his ex-girlfriend Reah Mansoor, 19, and her mother Parveen Mansoor, 39, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Morrison, who spoke only to confirm his name and age, closed his eyes and puffed his cheeks out after being refused bail at Manchester Magistrates' Court.

Morrison, from Urmston, Manchester, was arrested on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old, who did not enter a plea, has been charged with two counts of common assault, and was remanded in custody until August 7.

Morrison was sold by Manchester United to West Ham in 2012.
