Festival organisers ban Muse stunt

Rockers Muse have been banned from performing a spaceship style stunt at the V Festival this weekend - because it breaches health and safety rules.

The band planned a spectacular stunt which included a UFO (unidentified flying object) joining them on stage, but festival officials have axed the idea.

Frontman Matt Bellamy says, "Health and Safety are as usual ruining it all. I'm not sure V are quite prepared for us.

"We've redesigned the whole stage and we're bringing in loads of props that won't be on stage but around the venue."
