V Festival 2015: Staffordshire Police issue warning over dangerous drugs found onsite!


Staffordshire Police have released a statement after discovering dangerous drugs found onsite at V Festival 2015.


Staffs Police and organisers at V Festival are issuing a warning about dangerous drugs that are circulating the Festival at the moment.

Supt. Elliott Sharrard-Williams, commander of the police operation at the V Festival in Staffordshire said: “We discovered samples of two very dangerous substances with unusually high purity. One is a purple pill with a Louis Vuitton logo & the other an orange pill with crown logo.

“We examined the tablets at the onsite drugs lab, and we are concerned that high level of purity could cause users to become serious ill.

“Late last night a young man was found collapsed in the arena and he was immediately treated and transferred to hospital with a suspected drug overdose. Thankfully the man is recovering in hospital.

“We are working to support the organisers to keep V Festival as safe and enjoyable event and I urge anyone in contact with drugs to deposit them in the dedicated drugs bins on the site.” 

V Festival Twitter account recently tweeted: “Please be aware of two highly dangerous pills tested on-site by Police.”

If you see any of these dangerous pills, do not take and report it to the police onsite.
