POLICE have confirmed the identity of a man, who died after reportedly leaving Creamfields, as James Weston.

Officers are continuing to investigate whether the death of Mr Weston, from Leicestershire, was linked to drugs, with results of a post mortem inconclusive.

The 22-year-old was found by paramedics struggling to breathe in a Travelodge on the outskirts of Widnes, with police called at 5.23am on Sunday.

Mr Weston was taken to Whiston Hospital where his condition deteriorated and he died a short time later.

His family has asked for time to grieve.

A spokesman for Cheshire Police said: "A post mortem has been carried out but the cause of death was withheld and the results of further toxicology tests are awaited.

"The cause of death is currently being treated as unexplained and officers are examining whether it is in any way drug related.

"An investigation is continuing and officers are currently piecing together as much information as possible in a bid to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident."

The death was one of two linked to the dance music festival in Daresbury.

As revealed in the Warrington Guardian, Glasgow resident Aiden Connolly, aged 20, was killed after being struck by a car when leaving the site on bank holiday Monday.

Anyone with information can call police on 101.
