Two people have died after attending Wireless Festival, London


Two people have died after attending this year’s Wireless Festival in London.

A 20-year-old woman and 16-year-old boy have both been confirmed to have passed away after attending the event in Finsbury Park. The woman is said to have died in hospital on the Monday after the three-day event, which took place from July 6 to 8.

Scotland Yard told local press that police are currently investigating the cause of death.

The second fatality, in a separate and unrelated incident, saw a 16-year-old boy die on the Sunday of the festival after suffering a suspected asthma attack while leaving at about 9.40pm.

Paramedics treated him at the scene but he died in hospital at 12.30am. It is believed that police gave the boy assistance on Seven Sisters Road before doctors arrived and performed emergency medical treatment.
