Fans gather at surprise Stone Roses reunion gig

Indie band The Stone Roses have played their first gig in 16 years to an ecstatic reception from fans in Cheshire.

The four-piece played a surprise reunion show for around 1,000 people at Parr Hall, in Warrington, Cheshire.

The gig was announced four hours before the show and fans were told that they could get in for free if they arrived with a Stone Roses CD, LP or T-shirt.

BBC News spoke to music journalist John Robb and other fans who were there.
