Three people arrested over T In The Park attempted murders
Tayside Police have arrested three people in relation to two attempted murders at T In The Park at the weekend (July 11).

The arrests were made after police found two 20-year-old men suffering from "serious abdominal injuries" close to the campsite at the Balado, Kinross festival on Sunday night. The injured men are still in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, where they remain in a serious but stable condition, reports BBC News.

Event Commander Chief Superintendent Craig Suttie explained: "Our enquiries into a serious incident in which two men were seriously injured are ongoing and I would appeal for witnesses to come forward and assist us."

Police have also appealed for information regarding a separate incident that occurred on the site at roughly 10pm (BST) on Saturday (July 10), when a woman was injured and sexually assaulted near to the bus parking area. Police are looking to speak to a man described as white, heavily built, with dark shaved hair and wearing a long-sleeved dark top in relation to the incident.

A further incident at the festival saw a 19-year-old man badly injured after falling six feet from a flagpole on the Sunday night. The man sustained head injuries and has since undergone neurosurgery at Ninewells Hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

As previously reported, a 24-year-old man also died on the site on Friday night in a separate incident.

Festival organiser Geoff Ellis described the incidents as "very unfortunate", but praised the efforts of the on-site health and safety teams, as well as the 450 police deployed to the site.

"The quality of our event management team, the emergency services' work and on-site medical care has once again been outstanding," Ellis said.

229 crimes were recorded in total, down on the previous two years.
