Cutty Sark fundraisers will stage a star-studded benefit concert this summer after last week's blaze caused up to £10 million-worth of damage. The bash will be staged to raise funds for restoration work due to restart in the next few days - and organisers hope to coax huge stars into performing. Organiser Stephen Archer is keeping tight-lipped on the line-up, but said he would love local resident Jools Holland and Mick Jagger to sing shanties at the gig.
