A new-look live music festival is coming to Plymouth this summer.

'Ocean City Sounds' will build on the success of MTV Crashes, which has entertained thousands on Plymouth Hoe over the last four years.

It will see one night of contemporary stars and a second night of classic artists which would appeal to a wider audience.

The council says the new event marks the 'next step' in the growth of an annual music event for the city.

They also say that they are hoping to bring some of the world's greatest artists to Plymouth.

Members of the Public and Commercial Services Union at the Old Tree Court job centre in Plymouth will stage a strike on the last two working days before Christmas.

The industrial action is in protest of plans to transfer some of the 200-strong staff to other offices.

The union, which successfully campaigned for the job centre to stay open, fears the plans will lead to redundancies.

The Department of Work and Pensions says the changes will mean a more efficient, cost effective service. It also says it is committed to finding staff alternative employment.

The strike will take place on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 December.
