The second day of Portsmouth's Mutiny Festival has been cancelled following the deaths of two people on site.
The event opened yesterday (May 26th) with thousands of people entering the Cosham site.
Tragically, a "dangerous high strength or bad batch substance" on site has been causing severe problems.
Two people died in separate incidents after taking the substance, while two others remain in hospital.
