Crowds flocked to a major free music festival, which was headlined by two chart-topping acts.

Thousands of people had fun in the sun at the popular Northumberland Live event, staged at Blyth beach yesterday.

Renowned acts Toploader and Doctor and The Medics performed on stage, as did a host of local bands and musicians.

Ashington music fan Rebecca Flynn took to the stage with Doctor and The Medics after winning a pre-festival Air Guitar Star contest.

As well as the music, there was also street theatre and a showcase of local food to keep the crowds entertained.
