Man Jailed For Attacking MacGowan

Irish rocker SHANE MacGOWAN is breathing a sigh of relief after an English scaffolder has been jailed for three years for attacking the former POGUES frontman.

LIAM McINERNEY, 23, from Forest Gate, east London, punched and kicked the FAIRYTALE OF NEW YORK star in the toilet of a Belgravia, central London bar.

McInerney claimed the 46-year-old singer had approached him offering money for gay sex in Middlesex Guildhall Crown Court yesterday (24AUG04).

McInerney pleaded guilty to charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and a similar assault on a woman in a Hackney, east London bar.
