Travis frontman Fran Healy has criticised Beyoncé for her behaviour at last weekend's Virgin Media V Festival.

The Daily Record reports that Healy said that "everyone was affected" by the star's demands at last weekend's event, which she headlined along with Kings of Leon.

Healy recalled: "Beyoncé locked down the entire backstage area for an hour. Everyone was affected.

"You'd ask 'Can I just go there?' and they'd say 'No. You can't cross this little street.'

"Everyone was just following orders from the gang. I guess that's how Americans do it but it's not how we do it in the UK."

The Scottish singer also criticised Beyoncé for appearing on stage 30 minutes later than scheduled for her headline set.

"She was headlining the main stage and was half an hour late," he said. "The whole area was cut off as if there had been a nuclear disaster."
