Music stars were taking to the stage today as thousands of revellers finally made it to Weston Park for the V Festival.
There was traffic chaos as festival-goers descended on the park yesterday, with some reporting journeys of more than five hours to get on to the campsite.
Traffic started building early and remained heavy, with tailbacks of up to 14 miles reported on the M54. Up to 95,000 revellers are set to descend on the festival.
A total of 238 people were treated on site by Saturday morning by West Midlands Ambulance Service and St John’s Ambulance.
One woman had a tent peg go through her foot and was given emergency medical treatment but has remained on site to enjoy the festival.
Around 38 patients were treated by on-site ambulance crews and four were taken to hospital.
One man suffered a burn to his foot.
John Hawker, West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman, said it had been a 'steady start'.
"If you’re heading there today, it’s really important that you don’t forget your wellies as it’s muddy underfoot on site," he said.
"With the weather forecast predicting more showers today appropriate footwear is essential to reduce the risk of injury through a preventable trip or fall.
"As always, festival goers are asked to pace themselves with their alcohol intake and keep themselves topped up with plenty of non-alcoholic drinks to keep hydrated. This will help to ensure they get to see their favourite bands and above all, have fun."
American rockers Kings of Leon are headlining the main stage today.
