Three people have been injured at a festival in Derbyshire.

The music fans were hurt when a stage collapsed at the Bearded Theory bash in Ashbourne yesterday (May 16), according to BBC News.

Strong winds caused the collapse and those injured are reportedly receiving treatment in Derby Royal Infirmary.

Sally Booth, site manager at the event, told BBC News: "It's been raining and windy all day but this was a freak gust of wind that was capable of knocking people over."

Festival organiser James Willis added: "True to the festival spirit the personnel and festival-goers pulled together to ensure the continued running of the festival. The organisers are working to accommodate the acts which were due to appear on the main stage."

Neville Staple from The Specials, The Saw Doctors, Tofu Love Frogs, Hawkwind and Goldblade are on the bill at the event, which began on Friday (May 15) and is continuing today (May 17).
