Noel Gallagher Has His Say On Yorkshire Day

Noel Gallagher has reignited the age-old War of The Roses - in Cumbria.

During his Sunday night headline slot at Kendal Calling with his High Flying Birds, the Oasis legend spotted a Yorkshire White rose at the front of the crowd.

And in typical Noel fashion, the 49-year-old challenged the fan, asking them: "is that a Yorkshire rose you've got there?"

Then when the frontman was proudly informed that it was Yorkshire Day (today) he quickly retorted: "It's for Yorkshire Day? You've got your own day? Get to f***."

Proud Mancunian - and Red Rose Lancastrian - Noel seemed to have offended a huge part of the crowd though - many of whom had travelled from the neighbouring county, as they promptly began chanting 'Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Yorkshire'.

But all was forgiven seconds later when Noel and co launched into Fade Away and Oasis classic Champagne Supernova.

It was a storming set to close the Lake District festival, which also featured headline gigs from Madness and Rudimental.
