Lily Allen burst into tears on stage after seeing two members of her audience fighting as she performed at London's O2 Arena.

The 24-year-old singer left the stage after the fight broke out between two middle-aged men, seconds after she had given a shout-out to her boyfriend Sam Cooper.

Lily took a break from the stage as the men were escorted out by security and on her return told the audience: "That's the worst sort of violence - it's f****** sick and you lot should be ashamed of yourself."

The Fear singer later dedicated the song F*** You to Conservative party leader David Cameron.

She said: "I'd like to dedicate this next song to someone. David Cameron."

Last month Cameron revealed he had banned his six-year-old daughter Nancy from listening to Lily's music as her lyrics are "unsuitable".

Lily, who was supported by Dizzee Rascal at the concert, was performing the final date on her world tour, and revealed recently plans to retire from music when the tour ended. But she has already agreed to play several festivals this summer.
