    Former Cardiff City and Aston Villa midfielder Peter Whittingham is in hospital with head injuries.

    The ex-England Under-21 international suffered the injuries after an “accidental” fall in a pub in Barry.

    “At around 10pm on March 7, South Wales Police were called to a licensed premises in Barry,” a statement read.
