Read the passage carefully and choose the correct answer:
Do you sometimes have problems with your neighbor such as noise or littering? Well, the people of Pilton Somerset, England have such problems every summer. For three or four days every year, the village is full of people of all ages who come here for the annual Glastonbury pop music festival. They usually stay in tents, caravans and motorhomes. They leave drink cans and papers all over the street. The music plays until the early hours of the morning, and you can hear people talking and singing all night. The quiet country village becomes a nightmare to live in and some villagers are even thinking of moving to another village. A villager said that last year; “I don’t want to stop the Glastonbury Festival. I just want the fans to enjoy the festival without disturbing normal village life”.
