Support act in road accident

A BAND due to play at Harrogate Festival had to pull out after a car accident on the way to the gig.

Louise and the Pins were involved in a serious accident on their way to support Paloma Faith at Harrogate International Centre last Thursday.

Band members suffered borken ribs, cuts and bruising, and lead singer Louise Hull was kept in Harrogate District Hospital overnight and is now recovering at her parents’ home in Wakefield.

A spokesman for the group said: “Louise wants to extend her thanks to all the staff at Harrogate District Hospital, who really looked after her.”

He said the band hoped to include another date in Harrogate in a tour later this year.
