Man dies at Rock Ness Festival

He was found unconcious in his car

A man has died after being found unconscious at the Rock Ness festival in the Scottish Highlands.

The 39-year-old was discovered in his car by a member of the public at the event just after midnight, said Northern Constabulary.

Ambulance staff tried to resuscitate the man at the scene and he was transferred to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

“Unfortunately the man died shortly after his arrival at Raigmore Hospital,” the police said in a statement.

They also said the man’s death did not appear to be suspicious. They have not yet released his identity.

More than 35,000 fans have been enjoying the two day event, which finishes today (June 10). The Chemical Brothers headlined the main stage last night while Manic Street Preachers will close things off tonight.
