  9. Remember the pineapple ban?

    The Reading and Leeds festivals have banned pineapples, adding the fruit to a list which includes fireworks and weapons.

    But how is it going?

    The BBC went to Reading on day one... and it seems to be going less well.

    Video caption: This festival-goer has taken a pineapple into the festival site.

    Why the ban?

    Organisers said it was because fans of Oxford band Glass Animals bring hundreds of the fruit to its gigs, in a nod to song Pork Soda which includes the lyrics "pineapples are in my head".

    Drummer Joe Seaward said it would be a "challenge" to get in with pineapples, but...

    "Anyone who wasn't bringing a pineapple definitely is now," he said.
