Sale, though, have not released any further information about events.

Cipriani, who previously played for Wasps and the Melbourne Rebels, is nearing the end of his first season with the Aviva Premiership club.

"No passengers were harmed in the incident and the driver was shaken but didn't suffer any apparent physical injuries," it added.

"The police have investigated this incident and have reported that First and its driver are not at fault."
