WOMAD off to a sunny start

> Chic go through their paces last night

Good weather and great music greeted the opening of the WOMAD festival at Charlton Park last night. And with morte sunshine today the festival is set to be an altogether more pleasant expereince for the 30,000 people who have flocked to Wiltshire.

Yesterday's opening saw great performances from a wide variety of acts, including founder Peter Gabriel, funk legends Chic and punk pioneer Shane McGowan.

Police have made 16 arrests so far, mainly for thefts from tents. Officers have been using special decoy tents equipped with cameras to rap would-be thieves. The arrests are well down on the total of 90 last year.

Tonight's highlights include singer Martha Wainwright and reggae legend Eddy Grant.
