STONE Roses frontman Ian Brown gave Warrington food bank collectors a boost at the weekend.

The I am the Resurrection singer posed for a picture with members of Lymm Labour and parliamentary candidate Nick Bent on Saturday.

Mr Bent added: "Ian Brown kindly gave us a big bag of items from Sainsbury’s and also commented that it’s a ‘disgrace’ that food banks are needed in the 21st century, which I totally agree with."
