Police issue drugs warning ahead of 'Secret Garden Party' festival

The warm weather has arrived and it's the festival season - and police in Cambridgeshire have warned people attending this weekend's 'Secret Garden Party' not to try to take drugs onto the site.

The festival at Abbots Ripton near Huntingdon starts today and runs until Sunday. The warning comes after a number of deaths in Scotland were linked to fake Ecstasy tablets - and two people died in Cambridge, after it is believed they had taken a so-called "legal high".
