NEWTON’S Rick Astley returned to his roots on Saturday night playing in front of a 10,000-strong crowd at Haydock Race Course.

The singer appeared alongside a host of other 80s stars, including Paul Young and Marc Almond.

Haydock general manager Garry Fortune said: “Later rain didn’t detract from people’s enjoyment. The racecourse was delighted with turnout and how it all went.”
