The Rolling Stones face huge fine

London - The Rolling Stones are facing a £200 000 fine because their gig at London's O2 on Sunday was 35 minutes too long.

The veteran rockers - made up of Sir Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts - were playing the first of their historic '50 and Counting' shows and were meant to finish at 22:30.

However, they defied local council rules and thrilled the 20 000-strong crowd by continuing to play encores until 23:05, meaning they will be given a huge fine.

Fine is unlikely to upset band

Their agent Bernard Doherty told The Sun newspaper: "It means a big fine - but the guys just do their thing.

"There wasn't a janitor standing there, jangling his keys, saying. 'I want to go home.' "

However, the fine is unlikely to upset the Brown Sugar hitmakers as they are set to net over £15m from the five gigs they are playing.

The group will play at The O2 again on Thursday, before heading to the US, playing at the Barclay Centre, New York City, on Saturday 8 December and the Prudential Centre, New Jersey on 13 and 15 December.
