A man has been sentenced to eight months in prison after being found guilty of looting from Beady Eye frontman Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green store in Manchester.

According to BBC News, Owen Flanagan, who is 28 years old and from Levenshulme, just outside Manchester, pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary.

Flanagan admitted he stole clothing which was worth £175 from the former Oasis man's store as well as two electrical items.

The store, which is situated on the city's King Street, was looted on Tuesday night (August 9) after rioting occurred in central Manchester. Its front door and windows were left smashed after looters gained access.

It is not yet known whether Flanagan is the only looter who will be charged in relation to the Pretty Green incident. Courts across the UK are currently sitting for 24 hours a day to process all the cases from the riots.
