Glastonbury Goes Green

Organisers of Glastonbury Festival say they're trying to reduce their carbon footprint this year.

Worthy Farm have been looking at how to reduce the amount of lorries they put on the road during the 5 day festival. They've built their own water reservoir linked to an underground supply which they say will take at least 30 tankers off the road. In previous years the water was trucked to the site before and after the festival.

They're also encouraging festival goers to arrive by public transport and have made improvements to the sewage system which also take traffic off the roads. 

The 40th Glastonbury Festival starts on Wednesday 23rd June. If you're missing out, keep an eye on the Heart website for updates from our reporters!
