Special Glastonbury album dedicated to memory of MP Jo Cox

A special live album of acts appearing at Glastonbury is to be sold in memory of MP Jo Cox.

'Stand as One - Glastonbury Live 2016' is being created by Oxfam and the festival to highlight the plight of people forced to flee conflict, disaster and poverty.

As well as raising money for refugees, it will also be dedicated to the memory of the MP who was killed last week while out in her constituency.

Before being elected Jo Cox was a former Oxfam activist, who the charity said, "campaigned tirelessly for refugees".

Acts including Coldplay, Muse, Foals and the Last Shadow Puppets will dedicate a song from their Glastonbury set which will be recorded for the special live album.

The album is part of Oxfam's new campaign to put pressure on world leaders to welcome more refugees, prevent families from being separated and to keep people fleeing their homes safe from harm.

Researchers at the University of the West of England have developed a urinal that generates electricity as you pee.

It's a joint project with Oxfam which it's hoped will provide light for cubicles in refugee camps which can be dark and dangerous places.

The technology is being described as a huge step forward in green power generation.

Oxfam is an expert at providing sanitation in disaster zones, and it is always a challenge to light inaccessible areas far from a power supply. This technology is a huge step forward.

Living in a refugee camp is hard enough without the added threat of being assaulted in dark places at night. The potential of this invention is huge.
