POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING the deaths of two festival-goers at the T in the Park music festival in Scotland.

The deaths were being treated separately and were at this stage unexplained.

Campers began arriving yesterday for the three-day event at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.

T in the Park is Scotland’s biggest music festival, regularly attracting more than 80,000 music-lovers.

The Stone Roses headline the festival later tonight.

In a statement, Scottish police said:

“Police Scotland can confirm we are investigating reports of the death of a female, and the separate death of a male at T in the Park.

The deaths are unexplained at this time and work is ongoing to establish the exact circumstances surrounding both.

“We are unable to comment further at this stage.”

This year marks the second time the event has been staged at Strathallan after moving from Balado in Kinross-shire in 2015.

Other acts due to perform include Jamie XX, Disclosure and the Courteeners today, and Calvin Harris and the Red Hot Chili Peppers tomorrow and Sunday respectively.
