Glastonbury drug arrests

34 arrested as police crack down on festival drug offences

Glastonbury Festival was the subject of a police crackdown yesterday (June 21) as revellers heading to the site were arrested for drug offences.

34 arrests have been made for drug offences, four for possession with intent to supply.

Police have given details of a two-day operation targeting festival goers heading to Glastonbury from Paddington Station in London.

Police were using sniffer dogs and anyone whose luggage sparked interest from the dogs was stopped and searched.

At the previous Glastonbury festival in 2005, 183 drugs offences were reported, mainly for cannabis and ecstasy possession.
