Two men have been arrested by Essex Police on suspicion of possession with intent to supply drugs at the festival which is taking place this weekend.

Officers say the men, aged 22 and 21 and from London, were detained by security at the site in Hylands Park at around 4.30pm on Friday August 17.

The pair have been taken to custody for questioning.

A spokeman for Essex Police said: “We would like to remind anyone determined in bringing drugs to the festival that we have policing plans in place with our partners and the festival organisers to detect drug activity.

“You can report drug use by either taking to secuity at the site or by calling us on 101.”
