A man who attacked former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher on stage has been sentenced to 12 months house arrest, says the BBC.

The musician suffered three broken ribs after being pushed by Daniel Sullivan while performing at Toronto's 2008 Virgin Music Festival.

The band were forced to scrap later concerts in Paris and New York due to Gallagher's injuries.

Sullivan had earlier pleaded guilty to causing bodily harm. He claimed that he was drunk and could not remember how he got backstage at the concert.

The conditional house arrest will allow Sullivan to continue working.

Gallagher said in a statement that it felt like he had been "hit by a bus" following the attack.

Oasis disbanded last year after Gallagher quit following a deteriorating relationship with brother and frontman Liam.
