Torrential rain and gales caused havoc in South Wales and south-west England as the first major storm of the autumn swept in off the Atlantic, causing the death of a 17-year-old girl, flooding homes and leaving the emergency services rescuing stranded drivers from their cars.
Heavy rain is forecast to head north, and the Met Office issued severe weather warnings for northern England and the East Midlands.
However, the Bestival music festival in the Isle of Wight went ahead, despite the rain.

Bestival 87.7 FM will return bigger & bolder, rougher & tougher for 2008 with a Cosmic Space Odyssey, proudly sponsored by Jokers' Masquerade at at www.joke.co.uk/bestival. Broadcasting 24 hours a day and bubbling out good vibes for the whole weekend.
Tune in to Bestival FM from the comfort of your tent or tipi where you'll hear many of Bestival's musicians, DJs, personalities and performers taking a turn at the controls. Guests such as Coldcut, CSS, Tayo, Trojan Soundsystem, and thecocknbullkid are already confirmed to present their own all-star shows.
The idea behind Bestival FM is to enhance and expand the madness of Bestival, transmitting the chaotic perfection and the musical passion, drawing everyone on the site closer together, and at the same time allowing the awesome power of what is being created in that small valley to reach out and touch many more people on the island, the Solent and the world! For the whole weekend we'll be there to explore the sonic atmosphere, rocket into the silliness and transmit the Bestival message as far as possible.
You too can get involved and make the station the REAL sound of Bestival. Come and find Bestival FM onsite – it is the giant Portakabin on route to the Hippy showers on the way to the campsite out of the 24 hour field. This year the radio will be launching into the stratosphere, a portal for out of space aliens, astronauts and all things cosmic – just put on those moon boots and drop in for impromptu acoustic sets from Bestival headliners, tell us how your weekend is unfolding and bask in the audio bliss of out of space radio pandemonium.
I guess this is won't really help but it's everything i could find. If anyone knows anything else please be the hero of the day
