Teenager's face slashed at Creamfields festival

A teenager had his face slashed in a music tent at Creamfields festival in Cheshire, police have said.

The 19-year-old, from Liverpool, was in the Swedish House Mafia tent at the event near Daresbury when his face was cut with a weapon.

He was taken to hospital where he had to have stitches on the wound.

Det Con Neal Davison appealed to anyone with any information about the incident at about 17:30 BST on 28 August to contact Cheshire Police.

He added: "Most people would have been in high spirits and enjoying the atmosphere of Creamfields, but if you saw anything please call police as it is important we catch the unfortunate minority that choose to ruin the experience for others."
