In Pictures: Glastonbury from above offers unique festival perspective

Tens of thousands of people will be on the ground at Glastonbury this summer, but the sheer scale of the festival is perhaps best appreciated from above.

Worthy Farm in Somerset is hosting hordes of music fans hoping to see acts such as Stormzy, The Cure and Janet Jackson, and their accommodation for the long weekend was captured by PA from a helicopter above.

This year the festival site covers 900 acres in the Vale of Avalon.
