Thousands of people from Weston super Mare queued for hours today to get some of the hottest tickets in the country - tickets to see the hugely anticipated Dismaland exhibition in the derelict Tropicana in the seaside town.
The event itself doesn't open to the general public until tomorrow - when even bigger queues are expected. There is currently a lot of controversy about the Dismaland website, which is having an unprecedented number of hits from people desperate to get a ticket.
There are even rumours the website itself could be fake and all part of the "dismal" experience - but this is only a rumour at this stage.
