In pictures: Fatboy Slim's beach party
A quarter of a million people crammed onto Brighton beach for a free concert organised on Saturday by DJ Fatboy Slim.

Good weather encouraged four times the number of people who had been expected and public transport was overwhelmed at the end of the night.

But the success of the show was marred by one death and several people needed hospital treatment after being crushed.
