The organisers of the Glastonbury Festival have warned the public to not visit the Worthy Farm site in Pilton during lockdown.

In a statement, the festival organisers have said that they do not want visitors to the working farm, and that people who try and visit will be asked to leave.

The statement says: "Worthy Farm and its surrounding farms are private property and, given the current circumstances, the land used by Glastonbury Festival is closed to the public.

"Despite this, we have seen increasing numbers of visitors attempting to access the site used by the festival.

"For the sake of those who continue to work and live on the site, we would ask that you please do not consider visiting. Those who do attempt to access the site will be asked to leave."
