Motorists are being warned of delays in the Reading area as the town gears up for its annual music festival.

Reading Borough Council said it was expecting traffic to start arriving at the Richfield Avenue site on Wednesday.

The council has also set up a festival hotline for residents to report problems such as noise and officers will be on standby to respond.

About 90,000 people are expected at the three-day event, which features acts including The Cure and Foo Fighters.

Revellers are being urged to use public transport, cycle or walk to the festival which begins on Friday.
