Crime at this year's Glastonbury Festival is down compared to the same time in 2004.

Excluding drug-related offences, 36 crimes have been reported to police by Saturday including reports of thefts and four car break-ins.

In 2004, 74 crimes had been reported in the same period at Worthy Farm.

Drug offences currently stand at 80. Officers say they are being "pro-active" at stopping festival-goers taking drugs on to the site.

Somerset Fire and Rescue service spent some of the morning at the festival site using high-powered pumping equipment to clear water from near the Pyramid Stage.
