The deaths are being treated at “unexplained” and are not believed to be related.

A police statement said: “Police Scotland can confirm we are investigating reports of the death of a female and the separate death of a male at T in the Park.

“The deaths are unexplained at this time and work is ongoing to establish the exact circumstances surrounding both.”

T in the Park is Scotland’s biggest music festival, regularly attracting more than 80,000 people over the weekend.

This year marks the second time the event has been staged at Strathallan after moving from Balado in Kinross-shire in 2015.

The Stone Roses are due to play today with Calvin Harris and the Red Hot Chili Peppers headlining on Saturday and Sunday.
