40th anniversary of Stones Pembroke Castle 'gig'

You Can't Always Get What You Want, sang Mick Jagger, and it was never more true than when the Rolling Stones tried to perform at Pembroke Castle 40 years ago.

The gig was to take place in front of 12,000 fans but the old borough council refused permission for it to go ahead.

Health and safety fears were blamed but fans back in September 1973 thought councillors were "old fogeys".

Now a tribute concert aims to make up for lost time.

The BBC's Pembrokeshire reporter Sarah Moore reports.
