Glastonbury helps ticketless fans

Festival goers are assured they can still get in

Glastonbury fans whose tickets went missing in the post have been assured they will be able to attend the festival.

Organiser Michael Eavis said that all of the 70 to 80 people affected have been contacted and will receive duplicate passes at the gates.

Royal Mail says it is carrying out an “urgent investigation” into how the £145 tickets were misplaced.

It is the largest ever Glastonbury Festival with 177,500 people expected to visit Worthy Farm in Pilton Somerset, reports BBC.
