Police have applauded the behaviour of T In The Park festival-goers as crime has been low over the weekend, with figures around the same as this time last year.

Police Scotland say they have made 57 arrests in total since the campsite opened on Thursday (July 11), and these have been mainly for "petty crimes and minor drug offences. However, five people have been arrested and ejected from the festival site for using or possessing banned flares and smoke canisters.

Superintendent Rick Dunkerly, head of event planning for Police Scotland, said: "The general conduct throughout the weekend has been very positive. There have been 57 arrests in total made since campsite opened on Thursday, and the case remains that these are mainly for petty crimes and minor drug offences."

On people possessing and using flares, he added: "Flares are extremely dangerous and won't be tolerated at this event. Do not bring them, do not use them or you will be arrested."

Meanwhile, onsite medical services have announced they have had to treat 850 people in the medical tent, although most of the visits are from people suffering from dehydration, sunburn and forgetting their own medicines. "There is plenty of water onsite and we'd like fans to be making the most of that. It's simple advice, but it's crucial in weather as lovely as this," said medical coordinator Neil Gilles.

T In The Park concludes today (July 14) with performances from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, Foals and Frank Ocean.
