Two people died at the Portsmouth weekender...
Mutiny Festival

A number of live events have issued fresh drug advice following the death of two fans at Portmouth's Mutiny Festival.

A number of people were taken ill at the weekend, while two attendees - aged just 18 and 20 respectively - passed away after taking illegal substances.

Super-strength 'Punisher' pills have been linked to these incidents, with a number of festivals issuing fresh advice to attendees.

Mutiny Festival cancelled its second day out of respect to those who died. In a statement, Hampshire Police said:

"The deaths are being treated as separate incidents at this stage. They are not being treated as suspicious but inquiries are being made to determine the circumstances of what happened in each case."
