POLICE Scotland is investigating the death of a female and the separate death of a male at the T in the Park festival at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.

The deaths are being treated separately and are at this stage unexplained.

A police statement said: “Police Scotland can confirm we are investigating reports of the death of a female and the separate death of a male at T in the Park.

“The deaths are unexplained at this time and work is ongoing to establish the exact circumstances surrounding both.”

T in the Park is Scotland’s biggest music festival, regularly attracting more than 80,000 revellers over the weekend.

This year marks the second time the event has been staged at Strathallan after moving from Balado in Kinross-shire in 2015.

Jamie XX, Disclosure and Courteeners are also scheduled to perform on Friday, before Calvin Harris and the Red Hot Chili Peppers headline on Saturday and Sunday.
