Billie Eilish has used her Glastonbury headline set to address the US Supreme Court's decision to end the constitutional right to abortion.

She says today is a really, really dark day for women in the US.

She went on to dedicate Your Power, a song about older men who abuse their position, to everyone affected.

The US Supreme Court has overturned a 50-year-old ruling known as Roe v Wade that guaranteed nationwide abortion rights for women.

The decision means millions of women across the US will lose their legal right to abortion as individual states will be able to make their own laws on it.
