A  26-YEAR-OLD man has been found dead in one of the campsites in Creamfields.

Police officers were called last night, Friday, but later confirmed the festival-goer from Cornwall had died.

A Cheshire Police spokesman added: "Last night (Friday, August 26), we were notified following concerns for a man in one of the campsites and, sadly, a 26-year-old man from the Cornwall area passed away.

"Formal ID is to take place and we are awaiting the results of the post mortem examination to establish the cause of death.

"Our thoughts are with his family at this time."

Officers have also issued a reminder illegal drugs on the site will not be tolerated.

The spokesman added: "Cheshire Police are reminding people attending Creamfields that we want them to have a great time, but do so safely.

"Officers continue to take positive action against those who risk others’ lives by attempting to bring illegal drugs onto site.

"The Constabulary wants to remind people that drug supply at Creamfields will not be tolerated, and officers will take robust action where necessary."

The dance music festival runs until Sunday evening in Daresbury.
