THE 36-YEAR-OLD who was found dead on Saturday at T in the Park has been named by police.

Andrew West, from the North of England, is believed to have been found in the toilets at this year’s T in the Park festival at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire.

The 36-year-old man’s death is being treated by Police Scotland as ‘unexplained’ but not suspicious.

A festival spokesperson commented “We are extremely saddened by this news, and our thoughts are with the family.”

Police are also investigating an unrelated incident of assault that is said to have happened over the festival weekend. 
A statement on their website made clear that they were looking for anyone with information about the assault to come forward: 
“Police Scotland has been made aware of a video showing an assault that is believed to have happened in a campsite at T In The Park.

Officers are making enquiries into the incident and are appealing for anyone with information that could assist the enquiry to come forward urgently.”
