Clean-up after V Festival mudbath in Staffordshire

A clean-up operation is under way at Weston Park in Staffordshire after heavy rain turned the V Festival into a mudbath.

About 1,000 festival-goers required medical treatment, with several people breaking ankles at the site near Telford. Police also reported an increase in the number of arrests.

Hundreds of tents and piles of rubbish were left behind by revellers after the two day music festival.

Weston Park is hoping to reopen the house and gardens on Thursday, 27 August.
