A SPOOF Twitter account has been set up after claims 'people were collapsing in nine-hour queues' at a Hampshire festival.

Boomtown Fair UK, tweeting under the handle '@BOOMTOWNFAIRS', has been posting tweets poking fun at what some festival-goers described as 'a shambles'.

One tweet read: "Our newest #Boomtown District: 'Queue world' has been a massive hit already, with 90% of punters choosing to remain there #hotspot," while another said: "Thank you for your comment about #Boomtown We're glad that some customers are not total whiners."

It is not known who is behind the account.

The genuine Boomtown Fair organisers can be found tweeting from @BoomtownFair.
