Kent's Lounge on the Farm festival hailed a 'success
One of Kent's largest festivals has been hailed a success by police after officers visited the three-day event fewer times then in recent years.
There were six arrests, including one person suspected of injuring a security guard, at Lounge on the Farm.
Kent Police said officers were called to the Canterbury event about 10 times, fewer than in previous years.
Emeli Sande, The Wombats and The Charlatans headlined the festival which attracts about 10,000 people.
Four people were arrested for drug offences, one person was held after an assault and a 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving after a security guard was hit by a car.'Safer festival'
Ch Insp Steve Barlow said: "Kent Police has worked closely with the new event management company and its security contractors who have been co-operative throughout the preparation and planning of the event and during the actual festival.
"The result has been a safer festival for all to enjoy.
"This year there were fewer calls to police than during previous events. Officers attended about ten times during the weekend and there were six arrests for drugs offences, assault and driving with excess alcohol."
Lounge on the Farm has taken place at Merton Farm since 2006.
Canterbury City Council initially removed the event's permanent licence after the 2011 festival prompted complaints about noise, traffic and safety.
It agreed to let the event go ahead following talks with the organisers.
