A massive clean-up operation was today under way at Weston Park as hundreds of volunteers sifted through the sea of tents, deckchairs and clothing left behind by V Festival revellers.

More than 600 volunteers moved on to the site yesterday to begin the mammoth operation, which was continuing today.

About 90,000 music fans flocked to the Staffordshire stately home over the weekend for the annual festival – and left behind thousands of tents at the site.

Tents and chairs were today being collected by Rotarians from Brewood and Telford to send to the International Aid Trust charity, which will clean and repackage them and send them to countries in need, including flood-stricken Pakistan.
