Cancelled I Am Music festival performers angry

Hundreds of music fans in Essex are angry after a community festival was pulled at short notice due to safety concerns.

The decision was taken on Thursday night but some people still turned up at Castle Park in Colchester on Saturday for the I Am Music festival after the message failed to reach them.

Dozens children from dance and drama schools were due to perform and it is not clear whether people will get their money back.

The organisers issued an apology and said the festival would go ahead on another date.
