UPDATE: Berkshire man dies after suspected reaction to drugs at Glastonbury

Lucy Elder

A 26-year-old man from Reading has died after an incident at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset.

He was taken ill overnight from Wednesday into Thursday and was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

He died this morning after a suspected reaction to the class-B drug ketamine.

Police are not treating his death as suspicious.

A statement on the Policing at Glastonbury website, part of Avon and Somerset Police, said at this stage they believe this was an individual reaction to ketamine and was not from a bad batch of the drug.

His family has been informed.

Updates to follow.
