A group of unruly "lads" heading for a boozy weekend at Parklife festival had a very awkward reunion whilst on the train there.

Teacher Sarah Ledger shared a selfie on Twitter, showing her on a train with her pupils as they geared up for a big few days in Manchester.

They weren't her model students either, as she revealed almost all of them had "been in her office".

Posing with the 14 boys, the teacher from Cumbria wrote: "On the train and who should I meet? All my lads. On the way to Parklife.

"Every single one of them has been in my office at one time or another. We've got two hours of this. The worst detention ever."

The picture was actually reposted by the official Parklife Twitter account, which wrote: "Parklife bringing everyone together," followed by two smiley-face emojis.

It's likely that Sarah saw the funny side of the bizarre encounter given that she has been a stand up comedian since 2002 alongside her teaching career.

She has performed at comedy clubs across the country and even launched her own club, Spot On in her hometown of Carlisle, in 2003.

This year's Parklife is set to be bigger than ever with a huge lineup of international stars from 50 Cent and Tyler, The Creator, to Megan Thee Stallion and Lewis Capaldi.

They'll be joined by the likes of Chase & Status, Jamie xx and Four Tet, as well as Peggy Gou, Arlo Parks and Loyle Carner today (June 11) and tomorrow (June 12).

It will be attended by some 80,000 festival-goers on each day, making it the biggest metropolitan festival in the UK.

It's the first time the huge music festival has taken place in June since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Greater Manchester Police have promised extra patrols and warned concert-goers to be vigilant as 400,000 music fans are expected across the city to Parklife and other major events.
