Camp Bestival explosion victim returns with warning

A woman who suffered burns to 28% of her body when a gas canister exploded at a music festival is to return to the event to thank those who helped her.

Georgina Chalmers, 27, from Milton Keynes, was trying to cook lunch with a gas canister when it blew up at Camp Bestival in Dorset last August.

She described the "sheer panic" she felt when flames engulfed her.

She will return to the event this year and is warning other festival-goers to only use canisters with safety valves.
