Global Gathering death post-mortem tests 'inconclusive'

Post-mortem tests on a 24-year-old man who died at a music festival in Warwickshire have proved inconclusive, police say.

The man was found unconscious in his tent at Global Gathering at Long Marston Airfield, near Stratford-upon-Avon, on Saturday.

Police say more tests will be carried out to assist the coroner in determining the cause of death.

It is currently being treated as unexplained.

Paramedics were called to the scene but were unable to save the man, who has not yet been named by police.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police said a report was being prepared for the coroner.

The festival organisers have said they are "deeply saddened" by the death, the first in the 12-year history of the annual festival.

More than 50,000 people were at the two-day event, with about 30,000 people camping over the weekend.
