Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher gave drinkers a evening to remember by performing an impromptu gig in a Stockport bar.

The singer dropped into the Town Bar in Heaton Moor after visiting relatives.

He chatted with regulars and posed for photographs before picking up a guitar offered by a fan who wanted it autographed.

To to the punters' delight he performed Oasis and John Lennon classics with Primal Scream bassist Mani.

"It was definitely a different evening," said regular Jamie Entwistle.

Mr Entwistle had rushed to the bar after his girlfriend, who is a friend of its licensee, saw an entry on her friend's Facebook page saying the star had called in.

He said that one young fan returned with a guitar after asking the star to autograph it.

In return Gallagher asked to play it.

Drinkers were treated to several numbers including the John Lennon classic Instant Karma.
