Music fans left the Isle of Wight festival without any problems today. A contrast to the start of the festival when many people missed the first few acts because they were stuck in traffic gridlock, caused by torrential rain.

More than 100 4x4 vehicles and extra police officers were brought in to help pull cars out of the mud-swamped car parks. Organisers say the problems at the start of the festival will be analysed and new plans drawn up before next year.
