It wasn't the best kept secret - someone spotted their t-shirts on sale at the merchandise stands earlier in the day - but Elbow still delighted criowds with a surprise set at Glastonbury this everning.

Guy Garvey greeted crowds to mark ten years of Emily Eavis's Park Stage with an hour long set, that included favourites such as Grounds For Divorce and One Day Like This.

There was also some newer material from the band's sevent and latest album Little Fictions, including the title track, All Disco and the wonderful Magnificent (She Says).

Garvey - who appeared to be sporting a tattoo of the Manchester "worker bee" - also led the crowd in an impromptu song in honour of Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis: “One day… a dairy farmer… had an idea… and that’s why we’re here. He decided… Ah, I should have thought this through.”
