Traffic builds up around Huntingdon as more than 30,000 Secret Garden Party revellers leave

QUEUES are building up around Huntingdon as more than 30,000 revellers leave the Secret Garden Party.

Cambridgeshire police predicted travel chaos in the area as people arrived and left the four-day festival in Abbots Ripton.

Tractors spent Thursday and Friday towing cars out of muddy fields as queues built up around the village and nearby roads.

Organisers allowed festival-goers caught up in the delays onto the site on Thursday past the 10pm cut off.

Some visitors suggested on Twitter that the organisers should look at having more than one entrance and exit to cut down on queues.
