The rain stayed away on Sunday for the second day of the Jersey Live music festival.

Ben Howard and the Bombay Bicycle Club topped the line-up which opened in the afternoon with dance group Diversity.

The two-day event, in its 11th year, also included performances from Ellie Goulding, Earth Wind and Fire, and local artist Frankie Davies.

Saturday's event sold out despite the rain although some Sunday tickets went unsold.

Organiser Warren Holt said there was something for everyone at the event, including a new children's area featuring Mr Bloom of CBeebies fame.

The queue for taxis on Saturday was described as "huge" with some people waiting hours to get back to town.

Some festival goers complained about the lack of covered areas on Saturday as crowds packed bars and tents to get out of the rain.
