Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has backed Libertines reunion, saying he would like to attend the band's Hyde Park gig with his old school friends.

Speaking to NME about the band's first gigs since 2010, Turner is positive and says: "If there was a way we could go and jump around with our old mates to Libertines tunes the way we used to I would, of course, relish that. Maybe even knock dust of my old tunic."
