“After battling with the strong winds this morning to no avail, we made the difficult decision to strip the stage and put a contingency plan in place.

“We have been monitoring the weather around the clock today to judge whether it was safe to go ahead; public safety is paramount after all!

“Thankfully, the wind has now dropped enough for us to give the go ahead. Team Spyder have pulled together and worked tirelessly throughout this evening and late into the night in order to get the main stage back up and running.“
