Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien has been involved in an “unprovoked incident” outside of her home in Greater Manchester, her representatives have said.

The 40-year-old is best known for playing the role of Sarah Platt on the beloved ITV soap and is said to have contacted police over the matter.

It comes as The Sun obtained a video showing a woman, believed to be Tina, caught in an altercation with multiple girls.

The Sun, which first reported the story, claimed the incident first started as teenage girls were fighting outside her home, which occurred last Friday evening (March 15).

The newspaper reports that the actress intervened to try to break up the fight.
