FROM THE AVON AND SOMERSET POLICE WEBSITE:
We would like to give a huge thank you to local people for their understanding and assistance over the last few days - it is greatly appreciated.
The traffic issues yesterday were caused by the sheer volume of vehicles attempting to access the Glastonbury Festival site.
We worked hard with colleagues from Glastonbury Festival to alleviate the issues as soon as we were able to. We do, however, understand and appreciate the frustrations of local people who were affected.
