Festival visitors were warned of possible traffic jams on Saturday as South Western Railway services were disrupted by the RMT strike.

Councilor Steve Pitt, leader of Portsmouth City Council, said: “A successful Festival and Bank Holiday always means a busy weekend in Portsmouth and train strikes could prompt more people to travel by car, but we are asking everyone to walk, to ride a bike. or rent an electric scooter if possible.

“If people can plan their trips and make small changes where they can, it can help them and everyone else get around a little easier.”
