Beyonce dazzles V Festival crowds

Queen of pop Beyonce dazzled the crowds as she closed the Weston Park leg of the V Festival.

Thousands flocked to the main stage in Staffordshire to see the star, who was sporting a new blonde crop.

Despite making the crowd wait 25 minutes until she came on stage, the star dazzled them with an array of sparkly costumes.

She belted out hits including Single Ladies, Baby Boy, Crazy In Love and Love On Top before finishing with a rendition of Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You and Halo.

Also drawing huge crowds on the main stage were headliners Jessie J, who wowed the crowd with a monochrome two-piece, and The Script.

Two Door Cinema Club, Ocean Colour Scene and Paloma Faith were among the day's other acts.

Meanwhile on the Arena stage, Travis lead singer Fran Healy was overwhelmed as fans sang along to classics such as Sing, Flowers In The Window and Turn.

Their new single Moving was also well-received by the crowds, who clapped and cheered, leaving Fran with a tear in his eye.

"Thanks a lot guys. That's beautiful," he said.

Travis's first new album for five years, called Where You Stand, is out now.
