FESTIVAL-goers got stuck in huge queues getting out of the Truck car park today, with people reporting 'carnage' and delays of more than three hours.

Organisers of the festival in Steventon apologised about the disruption, and said traffic lights on Abingdon Road were exacerbating the issue.

Several people said the drinking taps were taped off this morning to deter people from hanging around on site, leaving many to endure the wait without any water.

Truck organisers did say they handed out water to people waiting in the shuttle bus queue, and have issued an apology about the delays.

One person branded the queue an 'absolute joke' while another called it an 'unorganised shambles', stating they had run out of water and the situation was 'unbearable.'

Truck Festival tweeted late this morning stating it had 'taken control' the traffic lights and confirmed at 1.30pm that the queue had cleared.

A statement issued on the Truck Festival Info Twitter page said: "We understand getting off site from our car parks today was slow and we are very sorry for the delays faced.

"We would like to thank everyone for their patience and wish you all a safe journey home.

"We hope this didn't affect your overall enjoyment of the rest of the weekend.

"Thanks again for Trucking with us and making this the most memorable weekend in our 22-year history." 

One man tweeted to ask police to help with traffic control, stating: "Absolute carnage and not safe. We've been sat in this stagnant heat for two hours now."

Thousands of people enjoyed the festival at Hill Farm over the weekend, with headliners including Wolf Alice, Foals and Two Door Cinema Club.
