Ticket holders are demanding a refund after a Brighton cheese festival ran out of its main ingredient.

The Big Cheese Festival, held recently, fell at the final curdle with organisers blaming "adverse weather conditions" for the shortage.

Ticket holders had been promised a "plethora of the finest international cheesemakers and mongers showcasing their amazing cheeses”.

But disruption caused by the cold snap across the UK meant they were left disappointed.

"BRIE warned", Rachael Chadwick wrote on Twitter, adding that the organisers needed to "tread CAERPHILLY" and should have "done FETA". She reckoned there was "more cheese in this tweet than there was at the festival".

In a statement on Facebook, organisers said they were "just as disappointed as yourselves that the event was disrupted by the adverse weather conditions".

They added that they take "great pride" in their work and have run "many successful events previously".
