More than 130,000 festival-goers braved the mud and rain at the two-day V Festival staged simultaneously in Essex and Staffordshire, to see musicians including Razorlight, Keane, Paul Weller and Radiohead.

Lily Allen, in trademark ballgown, enthralled the crowds at Hylands Park, in Chelmsford, with a typically cocky performance, including her recent number one hit Smile.

Morrissey closed the show in Essex last night, while Radiohead were the main attraction at Stafford, where The Ordinary Boys had to pull out when their bass player fell ill.

Other acts included the Sugababes, Faithless and Hard-Fi.

Three people at the Essex site were treated for serious burns when a tent and camping stove caught light and another man was treated for wounds to his hand after stabbing himself with a tent peg.
