Tens of thousands of people have now left the Leeds Festival site at Bramham Park.

But it seems they didn't quite take all of their possessions home with them.

On Monday afternoon, salvage teams working for local charities were allowed onto the site to see what they could make use of.

Some of the equipment, including camping stoves, tents and sleeping bags, will be offered to homeless people.

Haydn Lee, from Harrogate, works with the Leeds Homeless Partnership and took this eye-opening video on social media.

It shows what he estimates must have been tens of thousands of pounds' worth of discarded camping equipment:

Whatever items can't be taken will be sent to landfill.

Haydn told Stray FM: "When we turned up on-site, we were absolutely gobsmacked with how many thousands of tents and sleeping bags were left behind.

"We must have taken about 100 sleeping bags away with a full Transit van.

"We couldn't believe how much people were leaving."

Leeds Homeless Partnership runs two weekly street kitchens and anyone interested in volunteering with the charity can contact Haydn on 07904 012501.
