Aaron Lennon Detained Under Mental Health Act

Everton winger Aaron Lennon has been detained under the Mental Health Act by police over concerns for his welfare.

The 30-year-old was taken to hospital “for assessment” after police were called to Salford on Sunday.

Lennon is now “receiving care and treatment for a stress-related illness”, his club has said.

The England international, who joined Everton from Tottenham in 2015, has not played for the first team since February.

Greater Manchester Police said: “Police were called at around 4.35pm to reports of a concern for the welfare of a man on Eccles Old Road.

“Officers attended and a 30-year-old man was detained under section 136 of the Mental Health Act and was taken to hospital for assessment.”

News of Lennon’s admission has led to an outpouring of support on social media from those involved in the game, as well as fans of his current and former clubs.
