The Libertines comeback gig in Hyde Park didn't go as smoothly as planned last night. Fans jumped over VIP areas and started making their way to the front, some were throwing fireworks and flares.

The band then urged the 60,000 strong audience to spread out and give people space at the front who were being crushed. Doherty told the crowd, "We can't carry on if you don't calm down a bit."

Then later on in their performance, several fans - some of them naked - started climbing up the sound towers in order to get a better view of the band.
