Appeal for help after alleged sex attack at festival

Tayside Police have launched an investigation after an 18-year-old woman was allegedly kidnapped from a campsite and sexually assaulted at Scotland's biggest music festival.

It is thought that the teenager was lured into a van at T in the Park in Balado, by two men, who drove her to another area.

A spokeswoman for Tayside police said "Inquiries into this matter are ongoing."

The force has appealed for witnesses.

The 18-year-old had arrived at the festival on Friday with friends and was later dumped at an area near the festival venue on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, officers are also investigating the alleged sexual assault of a woman in her 20s, at the music festival.

The woman was knocked to the ground and assaulted near the bus parking area on Saturday night.

Tayside Police said her male attacker was disturbed by two women who were walking past.
