Glastonbury security guard found dead in festival tent
A security guard was found dead in his tent on the last day of Glastonbury this year.
Although the guard’s identity hasn’t been confirmed, reports say that the man was in his 60s and was working for the G4S, a private security firm based out of both America and Britain.
Officers who arrived at the scene reported no suspicious activity surrounding the security guard’s death. The man had been working overnight shifts at the UK festival, but hadn’t worked in the 24 hours prior to his death.
Glastonbury told NME that they will not be commenting on the death, but the man’s employer, G4S released a statement earlier this week.
“At 5pm on June 30, one of our employees was found dead in his tent at Glastonbury Festival, where he had been working as a security officer. The next-of-kin have been informed. Our thoughts are with his loved ones at this difficult time.”
The unfortunate event may leave some questioning the reputation of Glastonbury, but reported crimes fell a total of 42 percent this year, with only 13 drug offenses across the entire festival.
