P Diddy has taken to the stage in his first concert in the UK for five years.

The music superstar, real name Sean Combs, flew into Scotland for the gig in Glasgow.

The 40-year-old, who grew up in New York, spoke with fans and posed for photos during a tour of the city before the gig. Around 1,500 people were thought to be at the event at The Old Fruitmarket.

Tickets were free for the show on a first come, first served basis after fans applied on the MTV website.

P Diddy was performing with his new group Diddy-Dirty Money for the MTV Crash Glasgow night. As he stood on stage he was flanked either side by fellow band members Dawn Richard and Kalenna.

As he took to the stage just after 9.45pm, he said: "Hello Glasgow. We are gonna have a good time here."

As the crowd cheered, he said: "How do you all feel down there?" He also said: "Thank you Glasgow for having me."

Flower Of Scotland, the song considered to be Scotland's unofficial national anthem, was played after P Diddy took to the stage. The rapper urged the crowd to sing along.

The group performed tracks from the yet to be released album Last Train To Paris.
