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.


The past few days have not been great for any of the Geordie Shore cast.

After it came to light this morning that Charlotte is leaving the show because of all her drama with Gary, now it has emerged that Scotty T was arrested on Sunday.

The Big Brother winner was arrested in Newcastle for being in possession of an air weapon and MTV has released this statement:

"This was meant to be a mindless piece of fun, but Scott realises how foolish it was and apologises for wasting police time."

The police searched his apartment and he was then released after 6 hours of questioning – which he tweeted about.

What ever will happen next?!
