Crowds flocked to a March pub when members of a London-based music group returned to the town for the first time since hitting the top of the unsigned charts.

Five-piece band Storey played a number of songs at the Cock Inn, including their hit single Monkey Song, which was top of the Whiteroom 10 unsigned charts in September and October.

The group - including former March men Arron Storey, Liam Storey and Ryan Lemmon - also passed over memorabilia, including a number of copies of their album Out Of Reach, to the Sounds Good music shop for sale to fans.

Group pianist and guitarist Arron said: "We also thought that it would be nice for March people to be able to buy a copy of the album from a store in town rather than across the internet."

The band were forced to play as a four-piece on Saturday evening after guitarist Al Reid was unable to make it to March.

"But it was a fantastic atmosphere," said Arron. "The pub was full to the brim, and we are now in talks to return to March later this year, to perform at the summer festival.

- Storey's album, Out Of Reach, is available from Sounds Good priced £7.50 - £1 of each sale will go to Leukaemia Research because Arron and Liam wanted to do something to help their cousin, who is in remission from leukaemia.
