Former Watford FC striker Marlon King has been jailed for 18 months for dangerous driving.

King, 34, pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court after causing a three-car pile up in Winthorpe, Nottingham, last November.

The striker’s Porsche crashed into the other three cars, leaving one of the other drivers with a broken arm.

King spent three years at Watford between 2005 and 2008 and was the top goal-scorer in the 2005/2006 season.
