British pop band McFly have triumphed in a bitter wrangle with an American group over their name.

US outfit McFly reacted furiously to news the FIVE COLOURS IN HER HAIR foursome were heading to their country in search of success, and reportedly demanded they alter their moniker.

However, the British stars have proved such a hit in their native land, record company bosses took drastic action to ensure they could keep their name.

A source tells British newspaper the DAILY STAR, "The American group have now changed their name to THE MIGHTY McFLY."
