THE organisers behind one of Suffolk's biggest music festivals have donated tickets to a charity to help raise the awareness of a missing teenager.

Mean Fiddler, the organisers of the Southwold-based Latitude Festival, has given a pair of tickets for the 2007 event and a cash donation to the National Missing Persons Helpline Charity to help renew awareness of Luke Durbin's disappearance on May 12, 2006.

The 19-year-old, from Woodbridge, went missing after he was separated from his friends after a night out in Ipswich and has not been seen or heard from since.

There have been extensive appeals for help in tracing him nationwide, but they have so far failed to provide any fresh clues as to his whereabouts.
