Coldplay in secret Somerset gig

People in the Somerset village of Compton Martin, got an early Christmas present from their local pub Monday night.

The band Coldplay turned up to perform a secret gig. It wasn't a tribute band - it was the real thing. The pub confirmed that all the 'real regulars' were allowed to stay and watch.

The Ring o' Bells pub, near Blagdon, is part owned by Miles Leonard, the Chairman of Parlophone, Coldplay's record label. It follows a similar surprise by Kylie Minogue at the freehouse in 2010.

Other guests included Conor Maynard and cockney legends Chas 'n' Dave.
