TWO people have been arrested in connection with a teenager's death at a Winchester music festival.

Eleanor Rowe, 18, from Glastonbury, Somerset, died last Thursday after falling ill at the Boomtown Fair, held near the city.

A 19-year-old woman from Dinder, Somerset and a 21-year-old man from Wells, Somerset, were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of a Class C drug. They have been bailed until October 8.

The post mortem took place on Monday (Aug 12) but was inconclusive and toxicology tests are still being completed. An inquest was opened and adjourned earlier today but no cause of death was listed.

A police spokeswoman confirmed drugs remained a line of inquiry in the investigation.
