UK police looking into Nigella throat-grab photos
LONDON (AP) — British police are investigating newspaper photos that show art collector Charles Saatchi grasping the throat of his wife, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.
The pictures drew widespread condemnation after they were published by the Sunday People tabloid. The paper said the images were taken during an argument at a London restaurant on June 9.
The London police force said Monday it had not received a criminal complaint about the incident, and "inquiries are in hand to establish the facts" in order to assess whether a formal investigation is warranted.
Saatchi told London's Evening Standard newspaper that the pictures misrepresented a "playful tiff."
