Pop star and X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos has been interviewed by police investigating an alleged assault at a music festival in north-east Essex.

The N-Dubz singer issued a statement earlier this year denying accusations that she assaulted a blogger at V Festival in Chelmsford, Essex, but police have continued to investigate the incident.

It is understood Contostavlos voluntarily attended an interview at a police station in Chelmsford today.

An Essex Police spokeswoman said: “Officers are investigating an allegation of assault that is said to have occurred at the V Festival this year.

“Two people attended voluntary interviews today.
