Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green clothing store looted as riots spread to Manchester
Beady Eye man's fashion boutique targeted by rioters
The store, which only opened on King Street in December last year, had its windows smashed and stock taken.
The incident was instantly reported on Twitter, with @PoshKatt posting a photo of the vandalised shop together with the caption:
Liam Gallagher's Pretty Green store, King Street… there was a lot of blood in this store.
To add insult to injury, Sky News described the ex-Oasis/current Beady Eye frontman as a “former rock singer”.
Rioting in London began on Saturday and has now spread to other parts of the country, with Manchester seeing the worst of the violence tonight.
Last night, a huge warehouse fire in Enfield saw thousands of pounds worth of independent record label stock destroyed.
Tuesday morning saw artists, including Kate Nash and Kaiser Chiefs, join community members in helping clear up the mess left by the rioters.
