Heavy float is given the heave-ho
Carnival float
Police said the Marketeers float was too heavy
As carnival season comes to a close, one Somerset club has had its float taken off the road, because police say it was too heavy.

The Marketeers Carnival Club from Bridgwater, had its float pulled out of the Wells and Glastonbury parades as police said it broke the weight limit.

But club members deny the claim, and say they put the float on a weigh bridge where it was within guidelines.

They hope to parade their float during Monday's Weston-super-Mare carnival.

Derek Marsden from the Marketeers Carnival Club said: "The whole club is absolutely gutted, simply because we've done everything possible to get this vehicle within specifications, even down to weighing bulbs."

Avon and Somerset Police say the floats should not weigh more than 50 tons, but say they'll review their weighing processes after the Marketeers incorrect weighing claim - they say their float weighed 46 tons.

The police say safety has to be everyone's top priority.

Adrian Gridley, police event planning officer, said: "Nobody wants to see an injury or a fatality."
