Revellers at the first ever Glastonbury in 1970 each got a free pint of milk. Nearly 50 years on, it's still delivered direct to people's tents - but it costs £1.20 a pint. Much of the milk comes from the Eavis's own cows; and providing a link between the festival and Worthy Farm's real business. Greg Newman has been volunteering on the milk float for 12 years. He took the BBC on one of his rounds. Video journalist: Sophie Van Brugen
Soul singer Kenny Thomas has spoken of his efforts to raise funds so his four-year-old daughter can receive alternative treatment for a brain tumour. Thomas started an online appeal after his daughter, Christina, was diagnosed with a midbrain glioma in February. Doctors said chemotherapy would not prolong her life so the family decided to raise funds for an alternative treatment. His colleagues in the music industry also arranged a charity concert. Stars like Midge Ure and Tony Hadley performed at the concert earlier this month. Thomas, who lives in Norfolk, had hits in the 90s, including Thinking About Your Love.
Pop star Katy Perry ended her debut performance at Glastonbury by diving head first into the audience. It was less crowd-surfing than crowd-swimming, as the singer pulled herself slowly over the heads of her fans. "Well, Beyonce never did that," joked one audience member as Perry emerged from the fray. The stage dive came as the star performed Roar at the end of 60 colourful minutes of pure grade pop, including the hits Firework and ET.

"This makes me feel cool," remarked Perry as she observed the crowd. "I don't

The UK's first artificial heart pump has moved a step closer to being used on patients, scientists have said. It has been developed at Swansea University's Institute of Life Science 2 by Calon Cardio, and clinical trials are due to begin in late 2018 with the aim of a full rollout two years later. The pump is implanted into the failing heart and should last about 10 years. Stuart McConchie, chief executive of Calon Cardio, said it was the most-advanced pump of its kind. "This is for a very sick group of people and there are millions of them in the world, and hundreds of thousands in the United Kingdom," he said. "It is the first British pump to be built for this purpose: to treat blood which
Dizzee Rascal says he deserves to be given top billing at the Glastonbury Festival. "I've toured this festival for years, never disappointed," he told the BBC. "You can always count on me. "I'm basically at the stage where they need to make me headline this thing - because they ain't had no British rappers headline this festival." As if to prove his point, the star drew huge crowds to his set on The West Holts stage on Friday. Running through hits including Fix U, Look Sharp, Bonkers and new single Space, he provided a raucous counterpart to Radiohead's more cerebral set on the Pyramid Stage. Dizzee's appearance put him at the top of the bill on the festival's third-biggest stage, and grime collective
