FESTIVAL goers were getting into the party spirit at Ipswich train station today.

Hundreds of people queued in the rain as they made their way to Suffolk's Latitude festival.

After reaching the station by train the revellers faced long queues to buy bus tickets and then board the buses to the venue at Henham Park near Southwold.

But despite facing waits of around an hour in the miserable weather the crowds refused to have their spirits dampened.
