Festival-goers forced to leave the site after torrential downpours

Creamfields dance music festival has become the latest casualty of this years weather with the event ending a day early after torrential rain caused "heavy flooding".

The festival site at Daresbury in Cheshire hasvnow been closed and revellers told to leave the site after the heavy downpours over the last 24 hours flooded the area.

Widespread torrential downpours battered the UK's shores on Saturday with up to an inch of rain falling in some places.

Deadmau5, Tiesto and Groove Armada are among the acts that had been due to play on the festival's last day.

Creamfields organisers warned people via Twitter and Facebook on Sunday morning that the site was closed and people with day tickets should not travel.
Creamfields Sunday Cancelled

It is with regret that today’s event at Creamfields has been cancelled due to significant rainfall overnight and on site flooding.

Every effort has been made to continue with the event and following an evaluation of the site the decision has been made by the promoters, Cheshire Police and multi agencies on site to close today’s final day in the interest of Health and Safety.

The heavy downpour overnight has created issues across the site leaving many areas unusable. It is our primary concern at this time that assistance is given to those on site and ensure those campers exit safely.
