Dance fans surprised to find Warwickshire "soggy"

What with all the news on the News recently about England having its worst flodding since the invention of water, and poor old Huw Edwards having been stood up to his belly-button in a mix of run-off and sewage to present the Ten O'Clock news from flood-torn central England for what feels like weeks and weeks, we can't help but feel it's a little churlish of the people who turned up at Global Gathering, a few miles from the recently inundated Stratford-In-The-Avon, to complain that the ground was "boggy."

Other Global Gatherers (actually, to be honest, the same one) said that they'd had to queue for four hours to get into the grounds, although organisers dispute that:

Mr Algate said: "Usually I would say 15 to 20 minutes for getting into the event - I don't know where those people were coming from... I think yesterday's (Friday) queues at a maximum were an hour.

"To be honest, for a festival of this size that's expected."
