Free loo roll for festival-goers
Glastonbury toilet
Heavy rain in 2005 caused problems for Glastonbury toilets
Toilet facilities have long been the bane of any festival-goer but now Glastonbury is to issue free loo rolls to every ticket holder.

Event founder Michael Eavis has teamed up with a manufacturer to supply recycled paper and he wants people to leave their own at home.

"There will be more than enough for everyone and, more importantly, it will be the right kind of loo roll."

The aim is to make the Somerset music event easier on the environment.

Security measures

"The definitive example of our policy is our decision to invite Nouvelle on board as an official recycling partner to the festival, to give away free recycled toilet tissue," he said.

More than 130,000 tickets have been sold for the festival, which starts on 22 June, with tickets costing 145.

Organisers have gone to unprecedented lengths to ensure tickets do no exchange hands for inflated prices through touts or on auction websites.

Headline acts for the three-day event at Worthy Farm in Pilton include the Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, The Who and Dame Shirley Bassey.
