New photographs obtained by the Reading Chronicle show the shocking scenes left behind after this year's Reading Festival.

Taken by Reading Chronicle Camera Club member Tony McGinn using his drone, the images and videos show thousands of tents were ditched by partygoers.

A spokesman for Reading Festival said despite the scenes, the levels of rubbish ditched was less than last year. 

While Thames Valley Police said 50 arrests were made, up from 37 in 2022.

Over the course of the weekend, 105,000 people descended on the town to watch headliners 1975, The Killers and Billie Eilish.
