GLASTO ‘SAFEST EVER’

But police say a man has died at the festival...

GLASTONBURY’s second day has got off to a drier start – with police saying crime remains at record lows.

According to Avon And Somerset Police, total reported crime – excluding drug offences – now stands at 36, down from 74 crimes at this stage last year, a reduction of 51 per cent.

Arrests stand at 66, compared to 83 at this time last year.

Police also say that a man has died at the festival. Emergency services were called to one of the camping fields after a report of a man being taken ill. After being treated by ambulance staff he was taken to a nearby medical centre, but was pronounced dead at 8pm (June 24).

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Saturday’s line-up includes performances from Coldplay, Razorlight and New Order.
