Lashing rain and fierce winds battered parts of Britain as ex-Hurricane Bertha swept across the country.

A performance by singer Katherine Jenkins which was due to close the Junction 16 festival at Betley Farm had to be called off.

The singer tweeted: "I'm here, ready & willing to perform for you at Betley Farm but am gutted to say that I've just been told the show has been called off.

"Even more upsetting to be missing the last show of the summer, especially as I flew in from the states to see you all!

"Thank you to all who bought tickets - I will post details of how to get a refund - it's been a great season & I've loved every minute. Devastated we can't finish on a high!"
