Festival-goers are causing havoc in a Stockport village by urinating in the street, shouting, and damaging property, a former councillor has claimed.

Neighbours living around Whitebottom Farm in Compstall have complained that the farm brings 'thousands of people' to the village with its events, who are causing problems in the area.

It hosts a number of festivals and other events each year, including Moovin - a music festival with new and established artists which is next due to take place in August.

One said at the time that events at the farm create 'a backlog of traffic', and that it's 'not in keeping with the area.' They said it is particularly the case on Montagu Street, which is the main route to and from the farm through Etherow Country Park.
