People in Somerset are being warned to expect delays on the county's roads today (June 27) as Glastonbury Festival has come to an end.

Around 200,000 festival-goers will be exiting the site at Worthy Farm and roads around the area are due to be much busier than normal.

Traffic conditions at the start of the festival were better than originally expected, but queues did bring parts of the A37 to a standstill.

Rail strikes last week also affected those travelling to Glastonbury with dedicated train services running to Castle Cary station. Services have now returned to normal with trains operating throughout the day.

Which roads are closed around the Glastonbury Festival site?

Parts of the A361 and A371 are closed due to this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The A361 East Compton Road is closed westbound between A37 (Beardly Batch Junction, Cannards Grave) and B3136 (Pilton).

The A361 Street Road is closed eastbound between A39 (Wirral Park Roundabout) and Oriel Drive.

A371 Northbound closed due to Glastonbury Festival between B3153 (Castle Cary) and Snagg Lane (Ditcheat).

What is the latest from the roads?

There are reports of long delays and queueing traffic on the A361 between Totterdown Lane (Pilton) and The Appletree Inn (Glastonbury)

There is also congestion along the A37 near to the Pylle crossroad, through Wraxall and routes through Shepton Mallet. Cars are queuing around the Cross Keys Inn traffic lights at Lydford-on-Fosse.

Currently it is taking just over 20 minutes to get from the site to Castle Cary Station.

Festival-goers are facing a 50 minute journey to get from the site to Rush Hill, and around 50 minutes to get to the M5 Junction 23.

It is taking just over 20 minutes to get from the site to A303 Podimore.

More as we get it.
