MEDICAL staff treated 850 people at this year's V Festival.

Once the gates opened, on-site ambulance crews were called out 850 times and a total of 18 people were taken to hospital.

The incidents included a man in his 20s who was airlifted to hospital with a back injury, and a man who received minor injuries following a fire on the site.

Medical cover was provided by 300 staff and volunteers from West Midlands Ambulance Service, Venture Event Medical Management and St John Ambulance.
