Two soaked festival goers slide in the mud at Glastonbury- we could see more of the same this weekend

Grab some essentials as you may have a long wait in your vehicle.

Ms Glanville said the man suffered "significant burns" and was airlifted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, which has a specialist burns unit. If you're planning to travel to the festival, please delay your journey until later in the day or avoid coming to the site today altogether.

Campers tweeted in horror as pictures emerged on Monday of flooding at the Somerset site, with paths under water and camping areas already turned into mudbaths.

Adele, Coldplay and Muse will headline this year's festival, which will be attended by around 175,000 fans.

"A temporary campervan and caravan holding site has been set up at the Bath & West Showground".

Traffic at a standstill as people head to the Glastonbury Festival.

The weather and ground conditions didn't contribute to a smooth arrival either. There is also heavy traffic on the A37 north and south of the junctions with the A361. If you continue to use this site we will assume that you are happy with it.

Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has apologised to festival-goers for traffic delays that have caused havoc on the opening day.

Eavis said when the album was first announced: 'The scale of the refugee crisis is so huge we simply had to do something.

One family from Nottingham stated that it will take them longer to travel 10 miles from Shepton Mallet to Glastonbury where the traffic was at a stand-still than to get from Nottingham to Shepton Mallet. The festival gates opened at 8:00am, and while the incredibly muddy ground is delaying things, cars are finally making their way into the festival ground.

Authorities have confirmed the death of man in Birmingham hospital who was brought for "significant" burns from Glastonbury Festival less than 48 hours before the massive music event begins.
