Glastonbury Festival as seen from the sky

Preparations are under way ahead of Glastonbury Festival starting on Wednesday.

As the sun rose on Sunday morning, James Pearce, a Somerset-based paraglider, took to the skies 1000ft above Worthy Farm to take a peek at the site.

He shared images of the view online, showing a sea of colourful tents and stages spanning the landscape.

"It's immense up there," he said.

Mr Pearce paraglides over the site every year, weather permitting.

"I love flying. It's a passion and I get a different view of [Glastonbury].

"People don't see the scale of it - that's why I do it," he added.

About 200,000 people are expected to attend this year's festival, which will be headlined by Dua Lipa, SZA and Coldplay.
