An annual music festival has been criticised for having sheep that have been dyed bright pink.

The festival, held in Suffolk, sees thousands of music fans from all over the UK attend each year.

But this year's festival, which is on until Sunday, has been criticised for its bright pink sheep - a festival tradition that has been going on for years.

Latitude's Twitter account posted this video of the pink sheep:

But people really aren't happy

The RSPCA said it is not illegal

"This is very sad to see," they tweeted, with a crying face emoji.

"We're a charity with no more powers than any member of public, and unfortunately this is not illegal.

"We want all animals treated with kindness and respect and would discourage people from painting animals for novelty purposes."

But the festival has previously said that the sheep are dyed using natural methods.

One festival-goer, who wanted to be anonymous, believes the sheep are well cared for at the site.

She said: "I have been coming to latitude for nine years now, and the sheep are really well cared for, and always look as content as sheep can.

"They are dyed using a water based dye in the same way as they go through sheep dip in the normal course of farming and are about to be shorn anyway.

"They aren't trying to hide from people and they have an area away from people they can be in if they choose.

"I can't help but feel a lot of the people who are suddenly upset about it are not actually here. Iif they were they would see how cared for, healthy and unbothered by the dye they are."

These are the four heroes who rescued young girl from drowning at Portmarnock Beach yesterday. Young brothers Walter (21), Declan, and Eoghan Butler (both 18) were having a fun day out at the beach with their brother-in-law Alex Thomson (24) when they heard screams of terror from a man shouting, “Lifeguard! Lifeguard!” The four American men immediately went into rescue mode and dove into the waves towards the pink flamingo lilo as the girl, who they say was called Sierra, battled to keep her head above the surface.
