  • Never mind the travellers to the festival, what about the poor road users trying to go about their normal business, going shopping, visiting lonely relatives? There are insufficient procedures in place at Latitude and this impacts on other road users. As an aside, it's about time the A12 was upgraded to dual for it's entire length.
