Reports from our staff at the site of Bearded Theory, which is happening this weekend at Bradley Nook Farm, Hulland Ward, Ashbourne, Derbyshire, tell us that the Main Stage has blown down.

Apparently, there was a freak gust of wind - described by one person as a twister - during a storm, which caused it to collapse just as Subgiant were about to start their set. The flattened structure is now taped off.

There are reports of some injuries, though they aren't believed to be serious. Spirits on the site are said to be high, with people mucking in to help out as necessary. Music is still believed to be going ahead in the Dance Tent.

We're told that the storm has now passed and the sun is shining.
