The Virgins: 'How can you camp by the toilets at Glastonbury?' – video

Donald Cumming warns campers to be more careful where they pitch their tents

The Virgins: 'How can you camp by the toilets at Glastonbury?' – video
The Virgins have said they were shocked by some of the places people chose to camp at Glastonbury.

Speaking in a video interview you can watch below, frontman Donald Cumming said he had seen the worst-picked pitch of all while walking around Worthy Farm.

"The foulest thing I've seen so far, there's like a camp ground set up just by a bunch of bathrooms," he declared.

"I mean, obviously, the smell is really intense, and that alone, but also every two secs the bathrooms are just slamming the doors.

"There's a camp ground just there, so these people are literally sleeping in the smell of shit and the sounds of bathroom doors just going and going. I personally would have pitched my tent somewhere else."

Watch the full video interview below, then head to NME.COM Glastonbury 2009 index to relive this year's festival now.
