More than 30,000 people are expected at Charlton Park near Malmesbury for this year's WOMAD. The festival, which has been running since 1982, celebrates music, arts and dance from around the world.

The weather hasn't been great so far but Bob Crampton will bring you the forecast from the site in Wiltshire, so we hope it won't be too wet.

You can watch - and hopefully hear some great music - on ITV West at 6pm.

Bath filmmaker wins award for emotional tribute to his Nan

A filmmaker from Bath has won an award for short film he has made about relationship between grandmother and grandson.

22 year old Luke Taylor from Bath made 'Nan' about the relationship he has with his own 'Nanny Pat' - who starred in the film. The film documents their relationship, from his birth to her death.

See the whole of this beautiful film here.

She's just been such an inspiration to me. If it wasn't for Nan I wouldn't have known about university. So I wanted to make something to give back.

We put an advert out to cast for a nan, but felt that nobody could tell the story better that Nan herself. So that's when I chose to actually ask Nan to do it. That's why the performance is so great because she was so natural and she really felt all the emotions.

A litter picking crew of around 800 will spend up to six weeks clearing the 1,200-acre site, which has been left carpeted in rubbish.

Roads around the site are extremely congested, with bad traffic on the A303 around Stonehenge and on the A37 between Shepton Mallet and Bristol.

Co-organiser Emily Eavis described the festival - which has been particularly diverse and controversial this year with a last-minute cancellation from the Foo Fighters, a stage invasion during Kanye West's headline performance and a visit from Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama - as the best yet.

Meanwhile Avon and Somerset Police said it recorded one of the lowest crime figures it has seen in recent years, with 216 crimes reported compared with 246 last year.

Jessie J has cancelled her appearance at the Bristol Harbourside Summer Series this weekend.

The singer had hoped to soldier on for thousands of fans after having an operation earlier in the week, but has pulled out on medical advice following post-surgery problems.

Organisers say ticket holders will be refunded, with details announced on Monday.
