Singer Becky Hill sang on the street outside the Manchester Academy after she was forced to cancel a sold-out show due to a burst water pipe.

She tweeted that the local council made a decision not to put on the gig but "that will not stop me".

Around 200 fans came to see her perform acoustically before she travelled across the city to watch her friend and collaborator MNEK perform.

Becky says the date will be rescheduled and fans should keep their tickets.
