Creamfields music festival called off after flooding


Dance festival Creamfields has been cancelled on its final day after heavy rain flooded the site.

Organisers of the three-day event in Daresbury, Cheshire, said downpours overnight had left many areas of the site unusable.

People with day tickets for Sunday had been advised not to travel to the festival earlier in the day, after all entrances were closed.

Police also urged people already there to make arrangements to leave.

Creamfields organisers said they had decided to close for health and safety reasons.

People leaving the festival said they were disappointed the event had to end early.
