Model Poppy Delevigne still managed to look prim and proper despite the deluges that delayed the music at the Glastonbury Festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England.

Damon Albarn eventually took to the stage, and told the crowd that "democracy has failed us", in reference to the Brexit result.

On the morning news came through that the UK had voted to leave the European Union, Blur frontman Albarn spoke out about the referendum result.

Beginning his performance with the Orchestra of Syrian Musicians on the Pyramid Stage, the singer said: "I have a very heavy heart today, because, to my mind, democracy has failed us.

"Democracy has failed us because it was ill-informed.

"And I just want all of you to know that when you leave here, we can change that decision. It is possible."
