This week's news in pictures (4 July 2009)

Arctic Monkeys were forced to leave the stage midway through their first festival show of the European summer this week (July 2) as they played the Open'er festival in Gdynia, Poland. Halfway through their set, as the band were playing 'Flourescent Adolescent', the sound from the main stage speakers cut out. The band's monitors were seemingly still working, as they continued to play, oblivious to the problem. After a short period of confusion an announcer addressed the crowd to say there would be a short break as technical problems were sorted. He then led a chant of "Arctic Monkeys!". Photo: Tom Oxley
