Two men have died after the GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL in what are thought could be drug-related circumstances.

Avon and Somerset Police are still awaiting coroner’s report on the death of Rob Mair, 28, from Weston Super-Mare, who was found dead at his home on Monday (June 26).

Police in South Wales are also investigating the death of Peter Thomas, 28, from Hirwaun, near Aberdare, who was returning from Glastonbury on Monday. He was pronounced dead after being taken to Aberdare General Hospital.

Police issued a warning on Monday about bogus ecstasy tablets which were seized at the festival on Sunday, which were believed to have caused fits, blackouts and left one man in a coma for two days. The 20-year-old man, from Wolverhampton, regained consciousness on Monday, and was discharged from Bath Royal United Hospital yesterday.

A 19-year-old man from Bridgend, South Wales, who was arrested at the festival on Sunday night (June 25), appeared at Frome Magistrates Court on Monday charged with possession of drugs with intent to supply.
