    A Paratrooper who fought in Afghanistan faced court yesterday accused of stealing a £1,900 guitar during the riots.

    The serving soldier was among the mobs which trashed shops in Manchester on Tuesday – his 20th birthday.

    Liam Bretherton is accused of stealing the electric guitar and then trying to sell it on to a music shop near his home in Leigh.

    A cross-country champion, he serves with 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery based in Colchester, Essex.

    Manchester magistrates were told he had been prepared to admit handling stolen goods but, when this was altered to the more serious charge of burglary, he pleaded not guilty.

    He claimed he had bought the Gibson guitar from a looter for £20 but tried to sell it after realising it was a left-handed model.

    Bretherton’s distraught father Alan yelled: ‘He’s been a good lad all his life, he’d never been any trouble to us’ while his mother Eileen sobbed.

    District Judge Khalid Qureshi remanded him in custody for a week, telling him: ‘I find it hard to believe that someone with an interest in guitars just gravitated to a music store where a crime was being committed and ended up with a left-handed guitar by mistake.’

  13. First mistake: Not looting with the rest of his unit. They could have had all sorts away and not been caught.

    Oh wait, they're paras. They'd probably have been surrounded, run out of food and had to surrender.

    Never mind.
