Legal Highs Warning At Download

Having legal highs could get you kicked out of Download Festival this year.

70,000 people are expected at Donington Park for the next three days, half will be camping and started to turn up on site on Wednesday.

Organisers have banned legal highs and have told Capital drug dealers and anyone with Class A drugs will be arrested.

People with small amounts of cannabis will just have it confiscated but Sergeant Ian Weston from Leicestershire Police says that doesn't mean they're giving people an easy time:

'It somebody's got Class A drugs or they are looking to deal drugs then they'll be removed from site.

'They'll go through the normal police channels for dealing with those offences.'

Travel Disruption

If you live near Donington Park and aren't going to the three-day gig, police don't reckon it's worth travelling unless you really have to.

Officers have told Capital that despite the 70,000 fans heading there, they do everything they can to ease congestion on the roads nearby.
