Family event, Camp Bestival, is taking place at Lulworth Castle this weekend and has produced a list of items not permitted on the festival site.

The banned items list is there to keep people safe and ensure everyone has a good time, and not sticking to it could mean you may miss the festival altogether.

Festival organisers have warned revellers they could be searched on entry with any items that may be used in an illegal or offensive manner confiscated.

If found in possession of illegal substances, festival goers may also face arrest.
