Child dies after becoming unwell at Camp Bestival

The festival organisers expressed their “deepest sympathies” to the child’s family after the incident.

“A child became poorly on Friday night and, after receiving immediate medical care onsite, was taken to hospital in an ambulance, where they tragically passed away,” said a spokesperson for Camp Bestival.

They continued: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the family at this terrible time, and we will continue to support them in any way we can.”

The festival which brands itself ‘the quintessential family festival’ won the Best Family Festival in 2009, 2010, 2013, and 2014 at UK Festival Awards.
