The Rolling Stones in photographs to mark 50 years

An exhibition of photographs has opened at Somerset House, to mark 50 years since the Rolling Stones first performed in London.

The newly-formed group were booked at the Marquee club to fill in when the venue's regular band couldn't make it.

Keith Richards has revealed that The Rolling Stones have been rehearsing and will be performing "soon".

Will Gompertz reports.
