Parking woes at Victorious Festival yesterday
Driving into and parking at Victorious Festival has been a hit-and-miss affair so far for attendees, with some queuing for hours to travel short distance.
On Friday afternoon there were heavy traffic jams as thousands of revellers flocked to the city for Victorious.
Then on day two of the festival, some attendees were faced with struggles in reaching Southsea and to find parking spaces.
