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.

Mud delays start of music on Glastonbury stage

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".
