With no incidents reported nearby, the disruption is believed to be largely caused by those attending the event.

The concert follows an Olly Murs show last night, making up what has been described by Hop Farm as "one huge party weekend in Kent."

People who attended the Olly Murs concert said similar scenes were seen as huge numbers of people left the show at once.
