Thousands of music fans on their way to Europe's rescheduled Isle of Wight Festival have been left stranded by floods.
Bad weather and traffic delays are plaguing organisers, who hope to start the 2012 event - featuring Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - on Friday (22Jun12).
The main car park is waterlogged and event planners have been forced to secure metal tracks to enable motorists to drive to a dry overflow lot.
Organisers were forced to reschedule the three-day festival from its traditional early June slot to avoid clashing with Britain's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
