Proceeds of the sale will go to the tsunami appeal
Glastonbury organisers have been given the go-ahead to sell an extra 3,000 tickets for the Sunday performances at this year's festival.

People with disabilities will be allocated 250 of those tickets.

The remainder will be sold to residents living within a 15-mile radius of the festival site.

Mendip councillors agreed to increase the crowd limit after being told that the proceeds would be donated to the tsunami appeal.

All 112,000 tickets for the event, which runs from 24-26 June, sold out in less than three hours.

Pop diva Kylie Minogue will be closing the festival on Sunday.

Organiser Michael Eavis has already announced there will be no festival in 2006.
