Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher has declared that Glastonbury is "back in the good books", after his band Beady Eye kicked off the festival.

He had previously complained about the sound system at the festival after Oasis played on the Pyramid stage in 2004.

Gallagher said the festival had got better, crediting the organisers for its success.
