Glastonbury Festival security stepped up with revellers warned of …

Revellers are being warned of the potential of lengthy queues to get into this year s Glastonbury Festival1 after security on and around the site is stepped up. Around 200,000 people are expected at the festival site at Pilton over next weekend for three days of music and fun. And although police say there is no intelligence to suggest any sort of threat to the festival, in wake of recent terrorist attacks, extra security precautions are being taken this year.

Avon and Somerset Assistant Chief Constable and gold commander for the Glastonbury Festival police plan Caroline Peters said: “Public safety is always our top priority but we also want everyone going to the festival to have a great time.

“There is no intelligence to suggest a threat to Glastonbury Festival but we, along with the event organisers, will be taking extra security precautions this year.

This year s festival, at which Radiohead, Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran will be performing, will see more officers on the perimeter of the site helping with security searches. And police say although festival goers should not be alarmed they should remain alert. Assistant Chief Constable Peters added: The policing style might look and feel slightly different this year there will be a higher visibility of officers on the perimeter of festival helping security with searches.

“Our officers will also be wearing their new black uniforms, including their protective vests and body worn cameras – this is nothing different from officers on the beat across the region.

“We ve always worked very closely with the event organisers and we have tried and tested plans in place for all eventualities.

“Like the rest of the UK, festival-goers should be alert but not alarmed.

“If you see anything suspicious, report it immediately . You can do this in the normal way – by calling 999 in an emergency or 101 if non-urgent.

“You can also report anything to officers or security staff on patrol on site . In addition to this, we will also have the facility for festival-goers to come to the police compound and report any issues they might have.

“We would like to reiterate the advice that Glastonbury Festival has already issued about packing light and putting luggage tags or some form of ID on all your bags.

“Be patient if there are queues all ticket holders will be subject to extra searches of their vehicles, their bags and their person at this year s festival.

There is always a police presence at Glastonbury Festival

“This might make entrance slower than in previous years but please be patient if you are in a queue and cooperate with any security requests and all searches.

People attending the event can also follow police on Twitter at @policeatglasto for all the latest advice and photos. Highways England has already warned that motorways and major A roads leading to the Glastonbury Festival site are likely to be busy between Tuesday, June 20, and Friday, June 23 as festival goers arrive. The worst time to arrive by car is between 7am and 2pm on Wednesday .

In recent years at peak times, the A39 queue to get into car parks took several hours, while it took less than an hour for those travelling on the A37.

Increased levels of traffic are also expected on Monday, 26 June as people leave the site at Pilton in Somerset.

The primary motorway route for festival traffic to the site is the M5, with southbound drivers exiting at junction 23 to take the A39 and A361, and northbound drivers exiting the M5 at junction 25 and taking the A358, A303 and A37 while the A303-A37 is also used for traffic arriving from London.
