Festival-goers went from being sun-drenched to just plain drenched when the rain fell on Glastonbury yesterday.

A succession of short bursts of heavy showers of rain and hail sent music fans into tents and marquees as they sought cover after enjoying warm sunshine earlier during the morning.

Earlier police warned of the dangers of taking illegal drugs after a 26-year-old man was left fighting for his life after arriving at the festival venue.

Today is the first official day of music and will see Elbow, Lily Allen and Rudimental perform on the Pyramid Stage ahead of headliners Arcade Fire, while other acts across the site include Haim, MIA, Jurassic 5, Metronomy and the Kaiser Chiefs.
