Fan footage shows the West London MC rapping along to a track played from a portable speaker during a pop-up show hyping Tracey's new album 'Flu Game'.

The LP was released on Friday and the 'Ladbroke Grove' star has been on the promo trail, appearing on the Jonathan Ross show, Capital XTRA and signing records in a branch of HMV in London.

He was reportedly in Birmingham on Sunday and was planning to visit Bristol before the secret gig in Manchester was shut down by police.

Tracey took to Twitter to shout out fans in Birmingham and Manchester before apologising for the amount of people who turned up to the Platt Fields gig and conceding that a trip to the South West wouldn't be possible.

Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, has confirmed that organisers of the gig have been fined £10,000 for breaching current lockdown rules.

Fixed penalty notices have also recently been issued to an equipment supplier of organisers of a rave and a crowd of people who attended a rave in a disused bank vault.

Large scale outdoor events and indoor venues are due to resume from June 21.
