THOUSANDS of people are expected to descend on Huntingdonshire for the Secret Garden Party this weekend causing disruption to motorists and rail commuters.
The four-day music festival at Abbots Ripton attracted 32,000 people in total last year causing mayhem on the roads around Huntingdon.
Rail users have also been warned as there will be extra people using Huntingdon Railway Station.
Detective Superintendent Paul Fullwood said: “A large number of vehicles are expected to be heading to the site over the next few days.
“We would remind residents to allow more time for their journey as there may be some disruption to routes around the venue.”
Festival-goers have also been warned to keep their valuables secure after thefts from cars and tents at other festivals and last year’s Secret Garden Party.
Officers are also warning revellers not to take drugs following two deaths in Cambridge potentially linked to drugs.
