Former Happy Mondays star Bez will appear in court today accused of breaching a restraining order.

The star – real name Mark Berry – was arrested yesterday after failing to answer bail on allegations he pestered ex-girlfriend Monica Ward, the mother of his two-year-old son.

Ms Ward claims the 46-year-old harassed her with text messages and phone calls after he was convicted of assaulting her in August.

Berry, who found fame with his freaky dancing in the Happy Mondays in the late 1980s, was held yesterday by British Transport Police at Euston Station in London, Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said.

He was charged with breach of a restraining order and trespass on a railway and will appear at Manchester City Magistrates Court.
