18th June 2009

Fans at this year’s Glastonbury Festival are to be offered free chlamydia tests.

Anyone aged 15-24 will be able to visit a screening centre at six "information points" around the site of the concert at Worthy Farm in Somerset from June 26-28.

The sexually transmitted infection has no symptoms in more than half of men and 70% of women but if left untreated chlamydia can cause infertility.
