Cars destroyed at festival

A total of 82 cars were destroyed after a fire broke out during The Boomtown Fair music festival which held annually in field just a few miles from Winchester city centre in the South of England.

More than 50,000 people attended the four-day event and one campsite had to be evacuated as a safety measure in case the fire spread to the tents.

The fire was in a field being used as car park. Fire officials said later they believed the blaze was started by a discarded cigarette into dried stubble straw cutting left behind after a recent harvest.
