Commonwealth Games boxer, Sean McComb , won't face punishment from team NI over an incident in a night club in Australia's Gold Coast. 

Bosses say the 25 year-old was an 'innocent victim' caught up in Tuesday's events. 

The boxing skipper was given a fixed penalty notice for causing public nuscience.

Team NI managers say they believe the light-welterweight fighter wasn't directly involved. 

In a statement they raised concerns over the accuracy of information circulated after images emerged of the alleged incident. 

They've also asked police in Queensland to fast-track the investigation. 

McComb was defeated in his division on Sunday, although team NI are guaranteed at least six boxing medals.
