An ambulance worker said he felt like a rockstar when he performed in the Olympic opening ceremony.

Sean Fullerton, who works as an A&E support worker based at St Helier ambulance station, took part as a drummer in the industrial revolution phase of Friday's £27m show.

Dressed as a factory worker, he was one of a thousand drummers.

He said the experience made him feel like Mick Jagger.

He said: "I didn’t realise how big the entire event was until I saw it on TV and I realised I was in front of a billion people.

"It was an amazing night - a cross between a great party and a concert. I can now boast I have shared a stage with both Paul McCartney and the Arctic Monkeys."

After performing his role he then volunteered to direct athletes through the stadium.
