A woman found dead in a tent at a music festival has been named.

Olivia Christopher, from Chesham in Buckinghamshire, was found on Monday and despite a doctor being called, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 18-year-old, known as Livvy, had been attending the Boomtown Fair music festival near Winchester.

Police say her death is not being treated as suspicious, but investigations are ongoing on behalf of the coroner.

She is the fourth person to have died at Boomtown during the festival's seven-year history.

On Friday, more than 80 cars were destroyed in a fire at the festival site car park.

Investigators believe the blaze was started by a discarded cigarette.
