This year's WOMAD festival has been hailed a huge success after just nine incidents were reported to police over the whole weekend with no arrests being made.

Wiltshire Police and WOMAD organisers have worked together closely for a number of years, to ensure the public enjoy a safe festival at Charlton Park, near Malmesbury.

Superintendent Gavin Williams said: "Despite the weather not being brilliant, the crime was down to a record low this year.

"There was a really good feel to the whole weekend, with a really great atmosphere.

"The planning and preparation by the event organisers, supported by the police and other partners worked extremely well.

"With over 30,000 people attending the event, it is brilliant news that no arrests were made.

"This was an example of the right level of policing resources and good partnership working."
