Two people have suffered serious burns after an explosion at Camp Bestival on the South Coast.

A man and a woman were taken to hospital after the blast ripped through a tent on a campsite.

It happened on Thursday as the four-day music festival got underway at Lulworth Castle.

Firefighters think a gas leak from a cooking stove was to blame.

Dorset Fire & Rescue are reminding people not to use BBQs and cooking appliances inside tents saying not only is there a huge fire risk but also the potential for carbon monoxide poisoning.
