England rugby player Manu Tuilagi was detained by Auckland police after jumping from a ferry
More ridicule could lie ahead for the England rugby team after Manu Tuilagi was arrested in New Zealand for jumping from a ferry.
The Leicester centre was met by Auckland Police after he jumped into the water and swam to a pier at the Auckland Ferry Terminal.
He was taken to Auckland Central Police station and issued with a warning for disorderly behaviour before being released back to his team.
While the identity of the player was not confirmed by police, Press Association Sport said it is understood to be Tuilagi.
The management of the England rugby team, which had lost to France in the World Cup quarter-finals shortly before the incident, were said to be "a little bit embarrassed". The England rugby players and the management have now returned to the UK.
Tuilaqi may have got off lightly, but a worldwide travel insurance can protect holidaymakers in case their actions have more serious consequences.
