As music fans arrive...

A fire has broken out in an industrial unit near the site of this years Glastonbury festival.

The fire, at a scrap metal works less than a mile away from Worthy Farm, has prompted a number of local residents to be evacuated.

But festivalgoers, who have been arriving since yesterday, were still flowing onto site just after midday.

People who have yet to arrive have been told to expect delays as firefighters have been forced to close roads in order to tackle the blaze.

Glastonbury gets under way officially tomorrow (June 27th) with a headlining performance from Kings of Leon.
