The singer of Mercury Prize-nominated band Slaves has suffered a dislocated shoulder, after an on-stage accident at Norwich's Nick Rayns LCR last night.

Isaac Holman, who also plays drums for the band, suffered the accident after losing his footing and falling into a speaker, while the band performed in front of a sell-out crowd at the UEA.

He was quickly treated by first aiders, before being taken to accident and emergency.

Chloe Alexander, from the UEA's union of students, said: 'As he was helped off stage, it was obvious that he had dislocated his shoulder.

'First aid were there in moments and he was given pain relief. He was taken straight to A&E but returned to the tour bus later in the night in good spirits.'

The band had previously played in Norwich earlier in the year, as part of BBC Radio 1's One Big Weekend in Earlham Park in May.
