Festival virgins at 70 - pensioners Richard Hopkinson and Meryl Knapp made up for lost time as they danced in the mud at Glastonbury.

The friends, both from Yorkshire, were spotted showing off their moves while listening to reggae at the Babylon Uprising tent.

The pair know a lot more about life than four-year-old Lyra Warrilow - but the youngster could teach them a thing or two about surviving five days at Worthy Farm. Lyra has been taken to the last three by her festival-loving family.

Mother Selene, from Rugby, said her daughter was loving the experience. "She's used to the mud, she parties like she owns the place," she added.
