Mutiny Festival cancelled after deaths and drugs warning

Mutiny Festival cancelled after deaths and drugs warning
The final day of Portsmouth’s Mutiny festival has been cancelled, after two people attending died. The police have confirmed these were separate incidents, in which a young man and woman fell ill and later died in hospital, but reports connect the deaths to a warning about a batch of bad drugs circulating the site.
The ‘harm prevention alert’ issued by organisers yesterday warned of “dangerous high-strength or bad-batch substance on site,” and it’s believed more people are ill. The deaths have been described as not suspicious, which means they weren’t attacked. 
Here’s Mutiny’s official statement:
“Following the terrible news from earlier today, the team behind Mutiny Festival are incredibly sad to announce that the Sunday of the festival has been cancelled as a safety precaution.
The safety of our amazing customers has always been paramount to us and so to keep everyone safe and in respect to those who have passed, we have taken the decision not to open today. As you can imagine, this decision was not taken lightly and was taken with the support of the local statutory authorities who we continue to work with.
Enquiries are being made into the circumstances of what has happened, but we must reiterate our advice to all our customers to responsibly dispose of any substances.
More information will follow when available, we appreciate your understanding at this difficult time.”
