XTC frontman Andy Partridge is recovering at his Old Town home after an accident involving some varnish.

He tweeted: "Splashed a little acetone-based matt varnish in my eye last night, just been to A+E dept of local hospital.

"No big damage, will just take time."

XTC was formed in the town in the 1970s, having hits such as Making Plans for Nigel and Senses Working Overtime.
