Mud leaves many stranded in Glastonbury's car parks

Dozens were left stranded in the mud last night as the mass exodus began from Glastonbury Festival.

Organisers warned people to prepare for the worst, advising: "If your vehicle has a towing eye, please attach this ready for possible towing."

Tractor and tow crews were on hand in case of trouble, but many revellers banded together to ensure those stuck were pushed out.

Heavy rain showers throughout the weekend lead to what has been dubbed the muddiest Glastonbury ever.

A steady stream of cars left the site in Somerset from yesterday morning in an attempt to avoid the muddy conditions and pre-empt the need to be towed.

But dozens found themselves caught up in the conditions as the persistent rain came down on Sunday.

The A361 and the A37 are both reported as busier than normal, as thousands try and exit the site.

There's slow traffic on the A361 in both directions in West Pennard in Somerset as people leave Glastonbury.

While, there's heavier than normal traffic on the A37 Northbound between Pylle Lane and the A361.
