Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has announced that he's pulling out of a planned visit to the Glastonbury Festival tomorrow.
A spokesman said that he's "focusing on the issues" thrown up by the "momentous" EU referendum results.
He was due to appear on the Left Field stage at an event organised by singer and activist Billy Bragg.
Mr Corbyn's visit was announced three months ago. He would have been the first Labour leader to appear at Pilton.
The start of music on the Other Stage at Glastonbury was postponed today because the grass was water-logged. Organisers were forced to keep back the crowd and lay down wood chippings to soak up the mud. After a delay of nearly an hour the festival organiser Michael Eavis cut a ribbon to get the music underway saying that it was a "gloomy morning for many reasons".
The Other Stage is opening now. Apologies for the delay as we repaired damage to the field. We will post updated set times shortly.

Glastonbury Festival has tweeted this warning to people queuing to come on site.
Carparks are open and traffic is coming onto site. If you are in a queue, please stay in your vehicle. It is not safe to stand on the road.
It follows long queues earlier today, after mud caused problems accessing the festival site at Pilton, although some late sunshine quickly dried much of the ground.
The Glastonbury Festival site is coping so far with the wet weather - though the mud might get worse with thousands of people arriving soonRead the full story ›
Hopes that the elusive urban artist Banksy might be returning to Weston-super-Mare have been dashed after the council denied any such rumours.
The Bristol artist pulled in the crowds in August and September 2016 with his antidote to theme parks, Dismaland, which he built in the former Tropicana on the seafront.
A Facebook group has claimed that he would be returning to the same venue with Happyland - in contrast to the miserable set up which proved so popular with visitors of all ages.
But any speculation has been quashed by North Somerset Council which says lots of events are planned for the Tropicana over the summer but none of them are Banksy's
A fundraiser from Bristol has written an anthem for Euro2016 which, as well as cheering on our team, is raising money for a good cause.
"England for Glory" has been written by Paul Hobbs and performed by Bristol singer Daz Sims. Daz is an ambassador for Variety the Children's Charity because of his work with young people. One of the young musicians performing on the video has autism while another is diabetic.
It is certainly catchy: judge for yourself
