In a statement Banksy has said the truck will "roll across all corners of the site at mealtimes."

The "Sirens of the Lambs" meat-truck art installation originally visited New York's meatpacking district back in October 2013.

The installation was eventually impounded by police.


Which then made its way on to t-shirts.

And now "Sirens of the Lambs" and its driver are paying a visit to Glastonbury.

The new version of "Sirens of the Lambs" uses an authentic local Somerset farm truck with “25% more added terror”.

Many seem rather confused by the truck.

Banksy's statement says when Glastonbury's organiser, Michael Eavis, was asked for a comment on the installation he said: "Is it some kind of animal rights thing? I’m not sure about it."

Eavis also added that: "Our cows are actually very happy, they have the highest milk yield in the County.”
