A woman dies of natural causes and a man dies after taking drugs on the first day of the festival.

The Western Daily Press reports that a 67-year-old woman died of "natural causes" last night (26 June). The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Meanwhile, a 26-year-old man has died after taking the drug ketamine. The man was treated at Bristol Royal Infirmary after being taken off the festival site on Thursday morning.

However, Avon and Somerset Police tweeted at 12.15pm on Friday (27 June):

"Unfortunately the man taken ill after a suspected reaction to ketamine has died this morning. His family are aware and being supported."
