70,000 enjoy Radio Aire party

Mcfly, scouting for girls and Alphabet are just some of the acts which entertained 70,000 at Radio Aire's latest Party in the Park, in Temple Newsam, Leeds.

Boyband McFly were the first act on stage, completing their third appearance at Party in the Park in Leeds by performing a string of hits, including new single One For The Radio and old favourite Obviously.

Swedish DJ Basshunter followed and fans went wild for his wacky dancing, which came to a head when he ripped off his vest to perform track Now You're Gone.

Fans also danced to top acts including Danish pop group Alphabeat – who made it to the show despite losing their luggage on their flight to Leeds – up-and-coming Irish band The Script and solo singers Sandi Thom and David Jordan.

A trio of former X Factor contestants also performed at the event, with 2005 contestant Maria Lawson and Eurovision entrant Andy Abraham warming up the crowd before last year's finalists Same Difference took to the stage. The brother-sister duo, also known as Sean and Sarah Smith, performed their own version of the Scissor Sisters classic I Don't Feel Like Dancing, as well as Breaking Free from hit film High School Musical.

Chart sensations Scouting For Girls, who reached number one with their self-titled debut album, closed the show with a storming set, including top 10 hits Elvis Ain't Dead, Heartbeat and She's So Lovely.

Before leaving the stage, lead singer Roy Stride – who spent hours signing autographs and posing for pictures – dived into the crowd to meet the fans.
