(hennemusic) Former Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno has been released from a UK prison after serving just over two months of a nine month sentence for benefit fraud.

Di'Anno - real name Paul Andrews - pleaded guilty in March to eight counts of benefit fraud amounting to more than 45,000; he was expected to serve at least four-and-a-half months in prison before being eligible for parole.

Di'Anno was charged after investigators at the Department of Work and Pensions received an anonymous tip-off that he was still performing live, despite saying he was unable to work. They reviewed YouTube videos of him onstage as recently as 2006, despite him claiming incapacity benefit since 2002. more on this story
