Last year, Hampshire Police called for the minimum entry age to the festival to be increased after reports of sex assaults, drug use and fighting.The force urged Portsmouth City Council to ban anyone under 18 in an effort to reduce crime.It followed reports that children as young as 13 were being allowed to attend.Organisers said there had been "revised entry procedures" for this year's event.
