The singer, who recently announced his retirement from stadium shows, was arrested by Heath Constabulary officers at 1.30pm on Friday in Millfield Lane.

A spokeswoman for the Met said: "A 45-year-old man was arrested in the Hampstead Heath area on suspicion of possessing drugs. He was taken to a north London police station and interviewed. He received a caution for being in possession of class A and class C drugs."

In a statement, Mr Michael said: "I want to apologise to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I'll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them."
