    A film about the Herefordshire band Mott The Hoople is being premiered at the London Film Festival.

    The band's first big hit came in 1972, when they recorded the David Bowie song All The Young Dudes.

    The film, called The Ballad of Mott The Hoople, will be shown at selected cinemas across the country, before being released on DVD.
