Farmers including Andrew Gilman, Tamworth, were quick to react to Mr Grimshaw’s faux pas, reminding him that Worthy Farm was in fact a working dairy farm.

 

Food writer Thom Archer wrote on Twitter: "Nick Grimshaw just called Glastonbury ’probably the most vegan friendly place on earth! It’s a dairy farm mate’.
