A Noel Gallagher lookalike was spotted “licking windows and swigging from a bottle of White Lightning” in Swindon town centre.
North Swindon Police shared the unbelievable sighting on its Facebook page at 6.30pm on Sunday.
The real Noel Gallagher was nowhere near Swindon, and was performing on stage with U2 in Sao Paulo, in Brazil.
Wiltshire Police did’t miss the chance to use several Oasis puns, with a spokesman adding:
“We received reports of a man resembling Noel Gallagher in Swindon at around 5.30pm yesterday who appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and was licking windows – not a Wonderwall, and he may have been Half the World Away.
It’s believed he was with another person causing a general nuisance. The incident was nowhere near the Oasis, but in the town centre, near the Wyvern Theatre. If anyone heard or saw anything suspicious in the area, please Don’t Look Back in Anger but contact us on 101.”
