Thousands of people braved torrential rain to watch Massive Attack play their first Bristol gig in 12 years.

The group were joined on stage by their musical collaborators Tricky and Young Fathers at their homecoming concert on the Clifton Downs.

Some 27,000 tickets for Saturday's show were sold when they went on sale in May.

Despite initial concerns about traffic disruption most festival goers said they experienced no hold-ups.
