The festival issued a statement after it was forced to close a day early this weekend due to extreme weather conditions.

Camp Bestival organisers were forced to bring the festival to a close prematurely.

The child-friendly music event - which takes place in Forset's Lulworth Castle - was due to close on on Sunday (29 July) night, culminating in a headline set from Simple Minds.

However, early Sunday afternoon saw the festival announced it would be closing its arenas due to "severe weather".
