Talking to BBC Introducing after her set on Saturday she said she was "on a high".

The 19-year-old singer, from Grantham, uploaded music to the BBC Introducing uploader and was played on East Midlands and Lincolnshire's Introducing radio shows.

That paved the way to her going to the iconic festival, which also saw Kylie Minogue, The Killers and Stormzy take to the stage.

My 7-year-old self would be freaking out.

Political Reporter, BBC Radio Lincolnshire

Here at the sports centre in Kettering, the results are flying in faster than the Harlem Globetrotters could throw the balls into the hoops at the end of the hall here.

And The Brexit Party have stormed it. They are first in every single result so far bar one in Leicester where Labour came out top with 33,000 over the Brexit Party's 11,000.

If this vote can be taken as a representation of a second referendum, then the message here in the East Midlands is clear.

UKIP leader should go 'sooner rather than later'

Liam Barnes
BBC News

East Midlands MEP Margot Parker resigned this morning from her position as UKIP's deputy leader, and she hasn't gone quietly.

She said the party's embattled leader Henry Bolton should step down, saying his "personal life took over the job he was elected to do".

Her resignation came after the party's national executive committee backed a vote of no confidence.

It would be quicker and cleaner if he came to the conclusion he could go sooner rather than later. This is taking time away from doing the job. This puts the party in a limbo situation.
