Drug Seizures at Glastonbury Music Festival 2014-2016

Question

I am seeking information concerning drug seizures by Avon and Somerset constabulary at Glastonbury music festival in 2014, 2015 and 2016. I am also requesting drug related arrests at this festival over the same time period.

 

I am requesting statistics relating to drug seizures and arrests. Firstly, I am seeking the street value of drugs seized at Glastonbury festival in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

 

These statistics should be subdivided by cannabis (all forms), cocaine (all forms), ecstasy/MDMA, ketamine, methadone, piperazine/BZP, mephadone/MCAT and other. This information should be presented as a monetary value in £, pertaining to street value.

 

In essence, what drugs were seized by the police force at Glastonbury over the given period and what was the street value by type of drug. This information should be divided by year, for example the number of arrests in 2014, the number in 2015, and the number in 2016. 

 

Secondly, I would like to know how many drug related arrests were made at Glastonbury over the same time period. This information should also be divided by year, for example the number of arrests in 2014, the number in 2015, and the number in 2016.
