Baby Ivy makes Glastonbury debut

A baby has been born at the Glastonbury festival

A festival goer capped off her time at Glastonbury in a special way, by giving birth.

The new baby is believed to have arrived in the early hours of Sunday at the on-site Ivy Mead medical centre.

The parents, reported as Heidi Wesson and Sean Crothers, were helped by medical staff as the Rolling Stones were making their Glastonbury debut.

It is believed the couple have settled on the name Ivy, after the medical centre where she was born.

Inspector Shirley Eden, from Avon and Somerset Police, said on Monday: "She gave birth yesterday in the Ivy Mead centre - and they then decided to call the baby Ivy."

According to the Daily Mail, a spokesman for Glastonbury said: "We'd like to send our congratulations to the family. We look forward to welcoming them back in future years.

"We've had babies born here that are now grown-ups. They still come every year. That's a beautiful thing."
