Somewhat incongruously, the heavy rain has led the organisers of the Truck Festival in Oxfordshire this weekend to ask festival goers to turn up on foot this weekend:
2. If possible, take public transport. There are hourly buses from Oxford and Didcot. We are still working on an alternative car parking plan as the parking fields are likely to be very muddy or even underwater.
3. Get dropped off in the village and walk up.
4. We do not recommend that you bring camper vans as they are likely to get stuck in mud.
It's the "or even underwater" which really suggests they're not mucking about, isn't it?
