VIDEO: Foo Fighters Target Hit

Fans of American rock group Foo Fighters have smashed their target to stage a concert in the Duchy - in just over two days.
Organisers launched the appeal online to raise £150,000 giving themselves a deadline of November.
But around 53 hours later, the total stood at £157,000.
The idea for the crowd funded concert came from the band themselves. Dave Grohl gave an interview insisting: "I'm telling you, it could become the way that bands decide where they want to play.
"It's a fun thing. It sort of changes the game. For the past 20 years we always decided who we're going to play with and where we're going to play. But now, if we hear that people want us to come somewhere, maybe we'll come there."
Now organisers are hoping that will be true of Cornwall - as they prepare to get in contact and try to arrange a gig either next year or in 2016.
There is still a chance to contribute to the concert appeal and secure a ticket for what could be one of Cornwall's biggest gigs in years. You can read more here.2:53pm 2nd October 2014
