Eighties pop star Adam Ant has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage

The singer was arrested outside a cafe following an incident near his home in Primrose Hill in North London on Wednesday.

Scotland Yard confirmed a 49-year-old man had been arrested for criminal damage.

The singer, whose real name is Stuart Goddard, was freed on bail to return to a police station in mid-July.

Adam Ant is best remembered for his Dandy Highwayman era, wearing outlandish costumes and face paint.

Starting out on the punk scene with The Ants, Adam Ant went solo and moved into the pop arena with an image and a sound that helped launch the new romantic era.

During his career he sold more than 15 million singles with Prince Charming, Kings of the Wild Frontier and Stand and Deliver among his biggest hits.

He enjoyed a revival with the hit single Wonderful in 1995, and has also tried his hand at acting in films including Drop Dead Rock and Cyber Bandits.
