The fifth and final day of the Glastonbury Festival began with fans still buzzing about Sir Paul McCartney’s headline act of Saturday night.

With Diana Ross and Kendrick Lamar still to play at the giant event at Worthy Farm in Somerset, few of the 200,000 fans in attendance showed signs of fatigue, although some were slow to unzip their tents on Sunday morning.
