Dizzee Rascal has pleaded not guilty to headbutting his ex at a south London home.

The rapper had been accused of allegedly assaulting a woman at a residential address in Streatham, south London on June 8 this year.

He had denied headbutting the woman, his ex-girlfriend, after he was accused of "pushing his head into the complainant's head and pushing her to the floor".

The alleged victim was left with "minor injuries" and "did not require hospital treatment", according to the Met Police.
