Musicians, comedians and TV stars raised more than £85,000 for Haiti earthquake victims by staging a concert.

Paul Weller, Seasick Steve, KT Tunstall, Bombay Bicycle Club and comedian Marcus Brigstocke performed to a 3,000 capacity crowd at the Haiti Earthquake Fundraiser event at London's Roundhouse.

All the acts performed free of charge to raise money for ActionAid and Medecins Sans Frontieres.

Ticket sales topped £85,000, organisers said, with more money set to be raised from collections.

All stars at the Roundhouse signed a Roy Orbison Epiphone guitar which will be raising more money for charity via the website
