Clean Up After Glastonbury Music Festival

The clean-up operation at Glastonbury is beginning as more than 120,000 festival-goers leave the site. After five days of mixed weather which saw torrential rain, hail, thunder and lightning, campers packed up their tents in the sun. Highlights included Dolly Parton, Metallica and Arcade Fire, while Kasabian ended the festival as they headlined the Pyramid Stage. A litter picking crew of up to 800 will begin to clear the site. Tractors carrying magnetic strips will travel across the 1,200-acre site to pick up tent pegs while other workers carry out a fingertip search. Converting the land back into a functioning dairy could take up to six weeks.
