The Glastonbury Festival site is still awash with abandoned tents, despite promises that they would all be donated to charities.

Many tents have already been binned due to a mix-up concerning who is responsible for collecting them, according to the BBC. 

During the three-day mud bath festival goers were encrouaged to leave their tents behind to be distributed to crisis zones around the world. 

But despite various pleas it appears that many of the tents are being binned and thousands are still on site because of confusion as to who is responsible.

Robert Kearle, a festival manager, told the BBC: "There seems to be some muck up between us and the charity involved.

"They thought we were doing it and vice versa. Eight different charities have been taking hundreds of tents away, though."

A spokesman from charity Global Hand said: "We obtained around 350 tents from the site. We're very happy with this result. We hope to do more next year.

"Every tent collected is one more that can be re-used by people in need."
