A woman has died at a music festival in Hampshire.

The 31-year-old was found unconscious in a toilet at the four-day BoomTown Fair at Matterley Estate, yesterday afternoon (9 August), police have confirmed.

The festival-goer, who was attending the event with her husband, was taken to hospital in nearby Winchester, where doctors attempted to revive her. She was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.

Police are investigating the scene, but say her death is not believed to be suspicious.

A statement from Hampshire Police said: "It is too early to speculate on cause of death, and a post-mortem examination will be conducted in due course to help determine this.

"Police are providing support to her family including her husband, who was at the festival with her."

In a statement, a spokesperson for the festival said: "BoomTown fair would like to express their sincerest condolences to the family of the young woman who was found unconscious on site but despite the efforts of all our staff involved she was later pronounced dead shortly after arriving at Winchester hospital.

"Our thoughts are with all her loved ones at this tragic time and the festival is doing all it can to assist those involved."

Last year Ellie Rowe, 18, from Glastonbury in Somerset, died at the festival after taking the horse tranquilliser ketamine.

Police said on Sunday (10 August) that the woman had yet to be formally identified. A post-mortem examination will be conducted in due course.
