Georgia’s mum had posted on Facebook saying her daughter had taken ‘two pills’.

Organisers of the festival on King George V playing fields, in Cosham, cancelled the final day of the event yesterday following the two deaths.

On Saturday, 15 people including Georgia and Tommy were taken to Queen Alexandra Hospital although not all of those were drug-related.

Politicians and councillors have since called for action and for investigations into the deaths and the safety of the festival.

Anyone with information that could help police should call 101.
