Female fans get festival toilets
A toilet at Glastonbury 2000
Women will have the chance to avoid scenes like this
Revellers at the Glastonbury Festival will be able to use special pink-coloured, female-only toilets for the first time at this year's event.

The She-pee urinals will be placed at each side of the main Pyramid Stage to help female festival fans avoid the usual unisex portable facilities.

They will be patrolled by uniformed staff to protect their users' dignity.

Festival founder Michael Eavis will unveil the toilets at a ceremony at the Pilton, Somerset, site on Wednesday.

Mr Eavis will also unveil the 70ft-tall Left Field Tower, designed by Mr Eavis and Cornwall-based artists Kurt Jackson and Graham Jobbins.

Entitled Working Together, it depicts 12 figures - fashioned from steel - pulling on a rope to symbolise the co-operative traditions of the festival.

It will stand in the festival's Left Field, a political area run by the Battersea and Wandsworth Trades Union Congress.
