Black Sabbath back home in Birmingham for reunion gigs

Original members of Birmingham's heavy metal pioneers Black Sabbath returned to the city for two sell-out concerts.

The shows at Birmingham's NIA and LG Arena marked the first time the trio had played together in the city since May 2005.

Fans from as far as Australia travelled to the concerts, with many queuing outside the venues for 12 hours before the shows began.

Bass guitarist Geezer Butler and lead guitarist Tony Iommi, who formed the band with singer Ozzy Osbourne in 1968, said Birmingham gigs are always the "most nerve-wracking" to play.

Ben Sidwell reports.
