A child has died after being taken ill at a family music festival in Shropshire.

The youngster became unwell at Camp Bestival at Weston Park, near Shifnal, on Friday night and died in hospital a few hours later.

Staffordshire Police said: “We were called to Camp Bestival at 12.37am on Saturday following reports of a child who was taken ill.

“The child was treated at the scene and taken to hospital in a critical condition. Sadly, the child died a short time later.

“Specially-trained officers are continuing to support the child’s family and we ask that their privacy is respected at this very
difficult and distressing time.

“Inquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances of the death.”

A spokesman for Camp Bestival, which this year featured acts including Rudimental and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, said: “A child became poorly on Friday night and, after receiving immediate medical care on-site, was taken to hospital in an ambulance, where they tragically passed away.

“Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the family at this terrible time, and we will continue to support them in any way we can.”

 Camp Bestival is an offshoot of Bestival, both co-founded by Rob da Bank, a BBC Radio 1 DJ.
