Thousands of people turned out at Carlisle Racecourse to see popstar Jessie J perform a string of hits in the sunshine.

Fans stampeded to get to the front once the barriers had opened - with two teenagers having travelled all the way from Oslo for the gig.

The former Voice judge performed a near 80-minute set at the racecourse, bringing a day of race action to a close. The singer mixed new material from her upcoming album with older classics like 'Do It Like A Dude' and 'Wild.'

With a 5,000 strong crowd of families and teenagers alike, Jessie J addressed her fans throughout the evening - dedicating songs to an eight-year-old boy called Josh and a couple celebrating their two-year wedding anniversary.

The singer, dressed in a matching purple crop top and shorts, thrilled fans by finishing her set with anthem 'Price Tag' - sung from the barrier inches in front of them, and stopping to take photos with them along the way.
