A top Jewish lawyer has been interviewed by police investigating the alleged theft of £158,000 of his former chambers' funds.
David Friesner, who has represented Premier League footballers and was one of Manchester's most highly regarded barristers, was questioned under caution over the missing money. He has not been arrested or charged.
Mr Friesner, of Salford, denies any wrongdoing. His solicitor, Ian Lewis, said he would continue to aid police.
