Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie is recovering in hospital after falling off stage and injuring his back during a gig.

The 53-year-old slipped from the platform and fell into the crowd while the band were playing at the Caribana music festival in Switzerland on Thursday.

A message posted on the official Primal Scream Twitter page the following day thanked fans for their support.

The Scottish band tweeted: "Thanks to everyone who has asked about Bobby. We're waiting for more news, but hoping to be back on the road as soon as we get the all clear x."

The accident resulted in Primal Scream's set being brought to a premature end.
