Moderate panic spread through the fug of hangovers yesterday when it emerged that three revellers had been diagnosed with suspected swine flu. A 10-year-old and two university students had shown symptoms and were moved off the festival site and into an isolation facility before returning home. "The view of the chief medical officer is that they had this before turning up," said Cristo Hird, a festival spokesman. "There is no more risk here than anywhere. Three in 177,000 people is very low."

For such an obviously immense and successful music festival, the BBC Proms presents, year after year, a surprising number of problems. It ought to be a matter of huge celebration. Every year, it supplies a remarkable range of top-quality concerts. It fills the hall with some of the most unexpected programmes – last year, a late-night concert of renaissance polyphony I happened to catch was packed to the roof. It is immensely popular on radio and television over two months and constantly challenges the audience with unexpected combinations and unfamiliar repertoire, as well as giving them the opportunity to hear visiting orchestras of world class.
