Staff will stay until 'the last of the campers have left'

As of this morning, 1,385 people have been treated by on-site medical staff at V Festival during the weekend.

Since the gates opened, on-site ambulance crews have been called out 279 times and a total of 30 people have been taken to hospital.

With thousands of people all in one place, it is always expected that some people will fall ill and require medical help. At Weston Park, the team of almost 300 staff and volunteers were on hand and have worked extremely hard to ensure every patient is given the very best treatment. The staff and volunteers will continue to remain on site all day today, until the last of the campers have left.

Thank you to all WMAS staff, Venture Event Medical Management and St. John Ambulance for their hard work ensuring a safe festival for all those attending.
