The timing of the story that festival message boards are suddenly buzzing with the news that Glastonbury attendees have got trench foot is curious - could the sudden discovery of this condition be because journalists spent yesterday reading the boards in search of some other story?

Of course, while it's astonishing that people get trench foot while watching the Kaiser Chiefs, the truth is a little less gobsmacking - trench foot is, in effect, chillblains that don't get proper treatment. But then 'Glasto Fans Get Chillblains; fail to take care of them' doesn't have quite the same grab-factor, does it?
