The organisation representing the UK's independent festivals insists changes to cut single-use plastic will be seen at events throughout the summer.

It's now hoped similar recycling measures will be rolled out at festivals here. 61 music gatherings have promised to get rid of things like straws and cups by 2021.

Paul Reed is the Chief Executive of the Association of Independent Festivals says steps need to be taken:
