George Michael has been sentenced to eight weeks in jail for crashing his car while under the influence of marijuana.

The 47-year-old Faith singer was arrested in July in Hampstead, north London after crashing his Range Rover into a shop.

The pop star was greeted by a horde of photographers as he arrived at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
