A blaze at BoomTown festival has destroyed 80 cars in the festival’s carpark. No injuries have been reported.

The fire broke out on Friday evening. Speaking to the BBC, festival representative Adrian Coombs reassured that they would help car-owners affected find their way home. “What Boomtown is doing at the moment is making sure that we help anyone who’s affected,” he said. “So we’re laying on internet access, phone lines, making sure owners can contact their insurance companies and facilitating people’s transport home when the festival finishes.”
