Poor old Noel Gallagher may be getting a bad rap this week for not turning up to Ariana Grande's One Love concert in Manchester but it seems he's been helping out in his own way.

Don't Look Back In Anger has become an anthem of hope in the wake of the tragic attack at Manchester Arena and according to sources, songwriter Noel has been donating all the royalties from the track to the victims.

According to Simon Kelner of iNews, online criticism of Gallagher (including irate tweets from brother Liam) is unfair.

"In the case of Noel, not only is he responsible for writing the magnificent Don’t Look Back in Anger, which has become Manchester’s haunting, post-tragedy anthem, but I happen to know that he has been donating all profits from sales of the song since the bombing to the We Love Manchester campaign. Criticism of a lack of empathy for his home city’s plight is misguided."

This is a very decent move. Good man Noel.
