Live Earth

Rock stars around the world are performing to thousands of music fans as part of the Live Earth day to highlight climate change.
Concerts in London, Shanghai, Johannesburg and Hamburg are under way, while events in Sydney and Tokyo have already ended.

Among the biggest names taking part are Madonna and The Police.

The day has been organised by former US Vice-President Al Gore, as part of his campaign to try to "heal the planet".

Reformed group Genesis, featuring Phil Collins, were among the first acts to perform at London's Wembley Stadium, starting their set with Turn it On.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Duran Duran and the Beastie Boys are due on stage later.
