Student festival plans rejected

A four-day music festival in north Cornwall could be cancelled after plans were rejected.

Cornwall Council planning committee voted unanimously to oppose the Beach Break Live event near St Agnes.

Councillors said they were worried about safety, traffic congestion and harm to the environment.

Organisers of the festival, which aims to attract up to 10,000 students to a site near St Agnes Beacon from 16 to 19 June, say they will appeal.
