Former Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan has lost two more teeth after falling over a wall in Limerick, Ireland.

MacGowan, who is well-known for his love of alcohol, has already lost the majority of his teeth and following an all-day drinking session with a friend, he fell over a wall, smashing his remaining teeth on a pile of bricks.

MacGowan's drinking buddy, Dan Gleeson, says: "We were driving through a village called Kilcurry at about 11pm and stopped because Shane wanted to be sick.

"The next thing I saw were two feet disappearing over a wall. When he got back on his feet he found he'd lost two more teeth.

"He was a bit shaken and sore and gutted because he hasn't got that many teeth to lose."
