Festival No.6 boss defends using flood plain car park

The event director of Festival No.6 has insisted the festival will be back next year despite problems with a car park which flooded, leaving vehicles stuck there for stays.

Jon Drape said the festival organisers were not warned not to use the site which is on a flood plain.

Both Natural Resources Wales and Gwynedd council have said organisers knew the park-and-ride facility was on a flood plain.

Speaking to BBC Wales, he said: "Houses are built on floodplains, it's not a reason we shouldn't use them."
