LONDON, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Britain's Glastonbury 2012 music festival has been canceled due to a shortage of portable toilets and police caused by the London Olympics, its organizer said.
Organizer Michael Eavis said he was told not a single police officer would be available for the event, The Sunday Telegraph reported.
"Avon and Somerset told us no police officers will be available as they will all be at the Olympics, and we only own half the loos (portable toilets) we actually need every year," Eavis said.
The event traditionally takes place at the end of June, but Eavis said it skips a year every fifth or sixth year, so canceling the 2012 event "seemed sensible."
The 2011 festival, with U2 as the projected headliner, sold out within hours. The festival traditionally attracts about 130,000 attendees.
Eavis, who just turned 76, said he will take a vacation in 2012 and might attended the London Olympics.
About 9,000 police officers will be on duty every day during the Olympics, the report said.
