PORTSMOUTH, ENG (CelebrityAccess) – UK music fans have been warned of a ‘VERY strong’ batch of deadly Ecstasy pills in circulation, following the deaths of two concert-goers at Mutiny Festival over the weekend.
18-year-old Georgia Jones and 20-year-old Tommy Cowan were both found collapsed on festival grounds and later died in hospital. Three men have been arrested on suspicion of supplying class-A drugs and remain in police custody, according to IQ magazine.
Following Saturday evening’s tragic news, promoter Mutiny in the Park opted to cancel the second day of the festival.
This morning, Parklife Festival, which is scheduled to take place in Manchester next month, issued a warning via Twitter and called upon fans to “act responsibly.”
