Christopher Shale death a 'terrible shock' says Tory colleague

A senior member of David Cameron's Tory constituency association has been found dead in a Glastonbury Festival toilet.

The body of Christopher Shale, chairman of West Oxfordshire Conservative Association, was found at about 0900 BST at the music event in Somerset.

Police are investigating the cause of death, which the prime minister said had left him and his wife "devastated".

The local Conservative Party agent in West Oxfordshire Barry Norton said staff were shocked at the news of Mr Shale's death.
