Blur voted greatest at Glastonbury

Blur's reunion show has been named the greatest Glastonbury performance of the past 40 years.
The re-formed band's headline slot in 2009 beat off a pair of appearances by Radiohead in the poll by BBC 6 Music listeners.
The station saw one of its own presenters, Jarvis Cocker, weigh in at fourth place with Pulp's career-making show in 1995.
Blur's show last year saw the band return to full strength once more, six years after guitarist Graham Coxon had left the line-up and members had gone their separate ways.
Runner-up position was taken by Radiohead for their 1997 show on the Pyramid stage, just days after they released their landmark OK Computer album.
A further appearance in 2003, as they toured Hail To The Thief, was ranked third.
Other notable acts to make the top 20 included Johnny Cash, Jeff Buckley and David Bowie.
The oldest performance in the list dates back to just 1990 when The Cure played a prestige slot. And listeners voted a show by Coldplay in 2000 - when the band had still to release breakthrough single Yellow - into seventh position.
The list was unveiled on Lauren Laverne's show.
BBC 6 Music is broadcasting live from the festival, with presenter Tom Ravenscroft following in the footsteps of his father John Peel who regularly featured in BBC Glastonbury coverage.
