Ground conditions are not suitable for cars, campervans and caravans leading to huge congestion on the roads around the site.

Some people have been stuck in their cars all night waiting to get in.

Organisers released a statement on the Glastonbury twitter feed: “If you are coming to the festival by car or campervan, and have yet to begin your journey, please do not set off.

“If you have set off and have yet to reach the site find somewhere safe and warm.”
