Bez sentenced for attack on ex

FORMER Happy Mondays star Bez will be sentenced today for assaulting his ex-girlfriend at their home.

Bez, whose real name is Mark Berry, accused the mother of his two-year-old son of stealing his cash and then flew into a rage as he grabbed her neck with both hands.

His former partner Monica Ward told Manchester magistrates that he was "looking insane" as he squeezed her neck and she feared for her life. She said he then threatened to kill her after she alerted police.

Bez will be sentenced at Manchester Magistrates' Court.
