A 25-year-old woman has died after falling ill at the Creamfields music festival in Cheshire, police have said.

The woman, from South Wales, was taken from the festival to Warrington District General Hospital at around 10.15pm on Friday, but later died in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Police said his death was not being considered suspicious, but an investigation is ongoing.

His relatives have been informed.

A 25-year-old woman from South Wales has died after falling ill at the Creamfields music festival in Cheshire, police have said. The woman was taken from the festival to Warrington District General Hospital at around 10.15pm on Friday, but later died in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

Superintendent Sarah Heath, who led the police operation for Creamfields 2022, said: ‘The tragic death of a young woman is heartbreaking and our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

“An investigation into the cause of his death is ongoing but at this stage there is no indication that there are any suspicious circumstances.”

Officers said there were no other deaths at the festival.

Police said that during this year’s festival, which is the biggest event in Cheshire, 39 people were arrested for a number of different offences.

Additionally, 71 people were questioned by the police regarding possession of illegal drugs and were subsequently removed from the festival for further processing through the criminal justice system.

A further 42 people were dealt with via a local resolution – these people were not arrested but were registered as being involved in drugs.

A total of 209 crimes were reported for various offenses – the most common being drug-related, which stood at 135.

Ms Heath added: “This year around 69,000 people attended Creamfields 2022 between Thursday and Monday. This is a huge undertaking and we have worked with event organizers and security personnel to keep illegal drugs out of the venue.

“There were drug dogs at the entrances and opportunities to place illegal substances and weapons in handing bins, as well as a thorough search process by security personnel at the entrances to the site.

“A conscious effort was made to target those who intended to supply illegal substances at the event – ​​which accounted for more than half of the arrests made – while we used other options available to us. , such as community resolutions, for lower level offences.

“All those who have been arrested and are being investigated for drug-related offenses will now have to face the consequences and pay the price for their actions.”

It comes just days after a 16-year-old died at the Leeds Festival in the early hours of Sunday morning “after taking a gray or black MDMA pill”.

West Yorkshire Police have named teenager David Celino of Worsley, Salford.

David tragically died after apparently taking a ‘grey or black’ MDMA tablet at the Leeds Festival.

Police have since opened an investigation into the teenager’s alleged drug-related death.

In a tribute, his family said: “Our David was a fiercely independent and warm handsome character who lived 110% every day and enjoyed spending time listening to music with his friends.

“He had just received fabulous GCSE results, entered university and was hoping to study computer science at a top university.

‘Leeds Festival was the highlight of its summer; in the end, it was to take his life in the most unjust, cruel and horrible way, and we are broken.
