An investigation has been launched by Gardaí over an alleged sexual assault at Electric Picnic in Stradbally last weekend.

The supposed incident happened on Saturday, August 31 at the music event in County Laois.

A garda spokesman confirmed in a statement that officers are investigating the report and are continuing to support the victim.

A spokesman added: "Gardaí are investigating the report of an alleged sexual assault of a female that is reported to have occurred on Saturday 31st August in the Stradbally area of Co Laois.

"Investigations are ongoing."

Gardaí also revealed yesterday that they were dealing with 453 'reported incidents' of illegal drug use at the annual event.

Six offences involved public order, along with one sexual crime, one minor assault, one theft, one arrest of a man for possession of an offensive weapon and four arrests for driving under the influence.

Of the four arrests involving driving, three were drug driving and one was intoxicant driving.


Following Saturday night's terror attack in London, police descended upon two addresses in East London and ultimately arrested 12 individuals in relation to the weekend's atrocity.

However, it has now been made public that all 12 individuals – seven men and five women – have been released without charge.

According to numerous reports, the individuals were released as Scotland Yard named two of the men responsible for the death of seven people on London Bridge and Borough Market.

Khuram Shazad Butt, a 27-year-old British citizen born in Pakistan, and Rachid Redouane, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan, were named as attackers last night while the third individual has yet to be named.

All three attackers were shot dead at the scene.

48 people were injured during the latest terror attack to befall Britain.




This is horrific, both for the animals suffering for these counterfeit clothes and the people unknowingly wearing them!

Following a year-long investigation into counterfeit goods, it was revealed that the clothing products seized by the police were made up of  ” a mixture of acrylic, viscose and fur from rats and other animals”.

A number of arrests have been made in Rome and police also seized many counterfeit merino wool and silk products.

We can’t help but wonder what “other animals” the police could be talking about…
