ISLANDERS have been urged to help revellers from the Isle of Wight Festival if they are stranded at the end of this year's event.
Tailbacks stretching for miles led to some festival-goers having to sleep in their cars last night (Thursday), prompting the creation of a Emergency and Community Information Facebook page.
The page has provided information and offers of help for those caught up in Thursday's problems.
Ryde resident Linda Bassett has now posted on the site, urging people to leave messages on the page if they are able to offer accommodation to vulnernable people - such as families with children - a place to stay, stop for a break or use the toilet, if there are more travel problems at the end of the event.
"It's no good just complaining if we are not prepared to help people. I am not suggesting people let in any Tom, Dick or Harry, but if it is a couple of young girls, or someone who is pregnant, then I would be happy to let them have my bunk beds for the night," said Mrs Bassett.
