Beth Orton Thanks Joey Barton Over Stolen Guitar
Footballer helped put the word out to get beloved instrument back...
Singer Beth Orton has thanked footballer Joey Barton for his help in tracking down her stolen guitar.
It seems that the temperamental sportsman turned crimefighter on Twitter when he heard that Orton's cherished Levin instrument had been lifted by a thief.
He wrote: "Friend of a friend has lost a sentimental guitar. Reward for anyone who can help find it..."
And Beth later tweeted Barton directly: "my guitar is back! THANK U for getting the word out & putting the heat on right when it was all getting a little close to ebay!"

The Marseilles player then replied that he was glad there were some "decent people" about.
"Do you have our 'honest cabbies' details, I'm gonna send him a signed shirt. Good man."
