The Edinburgh International Festival was forced to cancel one of its biggest concerts following an electrical fault.

The problems affected a performance which was due to take place at the city's Usher Hall on Tuesday.

The concert, featuring Russian singers, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Edinburgh festival chorus, had a bell-themed programme.
