POLICE are believed to be keeping an open mind after receiving a report that a man looking like Noel Gallagher was "licking windows" near the Wyvern Theatre.

Posted on the Facebook page of North Swindon Police at about 6.30pm on Sunday was the message: "You know it’s going to be one of those shifts when you get a report of ‘A Noel Gallagher lookalike swigging from a bottle of White Lightning and licking windows!’"

Police today said that their enquiries were ongoing. 

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: “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."
