A man has been found guilty of trying to rob footballer Andy Carroll of his £22,000 wristwatch as the striker drove home from West Ham’s training ground.

Jack O’Brien, 22, had denied attempting to rob the 28-year-old as he waited at traffic lights in Hainault, north-east London, on 2 November 2016.

Mr Carroll told Basildon Crown Court he believed O’Brien had a gun when he stopped beside him on a motorbike.

O’Brien, of Navarre Gardens, Romford, was found guilty of attempted robbery.

He was found by police hiding beneath a mattress in a property in Dagenham 10 days after the attempt.
