West Ham's Ravel Morrison cleared of assaulting ex-girlfriend and her mother

Morrison, 21, began his career with Manchester United.

West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has been cleared of all charges of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her mother, the Press Association reports.

The 21-year-old was accused of hitting his ex Reah Mansoor, 19, and her mother, Parveen Mansoor, 39, after a night out at a nightclub in his home city of Manchester last July 24.

He was due to go on trial at Manchester Crown Court later this month but on Thursday the charges were dropped by the prosecution and Morrison, who was not in court, was found not guilty.

Guy Mathieson, prosecuting, told the court the charges had been withdrawn after Morrison's defence team recovered CCTV footage of the first alleged assault outside the One Central nightclub, in Manchester city centre.

It showed that Morrison had not hit his ex, as was alleged, and she had "slumped" to the floor on her own.

The ex-girlfriend also withdrew her statement alleging Morrison later assaulted her outside her home when he dropped her off and there was "reluctance" from her mother to proceed with the alleged assault on her.

All three charges of assault were withdrawn.
