'Earplugs are useful' for Bestival attendees

People looking forward to enjoying themselves at Bestival this year may want to take precautionary measures to make sure nothing spoils their fun.

And this could mean that those heading over to the Isle of Wight for the festival choose to pack earplugs, as the practice has been recommended by TV doctor Christian Jessen.

The specialist - known for his appearances in programmes such as Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies - suggested those making their way to a music gathering this summer should take precautions to ensure it all runs smooth.

Writing for the London Evening Standard, he explained a person's ears need to be protected from the loud noise, adding: "Wear earplugs wherever you are standing and don't spend three days up against the speakers at the front of the stage."

Dr Jessen also suggested revellers refrain from crowd-surfing during gigs, while noting carrying alcohol hand gel to use after a visit to the toilet is a wise thing to do.
