TRNSMT: 15-year-old among 14 arrested in first two days of Glasgow music festival TRNSMT

Fourteen people have been arrested across the first two days of the TRNSMT music festival in Glasgow, police have confirmed.

Three people, two males and one female aged between 18 and 29, were arrested on suspicion of assault and disorder on Friday evening when Pulp headlined the three-day festival at Glasgow Green.

On Saturday, following heavy rain and thunderstorms, police said 11 arrests had been made of people aged between 15 and 46 accused of offences including assault, disorder and drug offences.

Festival-goers have been arriving for the final day of music acts, including headliners The 1975, with Becky Hill, Jamie Webster and The Kooks performing earlier in the day.

On Saturday festival-goers had to contend with heavy mud as Glasgow Green turned into swamp, but there will be a little respite for music-lovers on Sunday, with sunny intervals forecast before rain returns in the late afternoon and early evening.

Festival director Geoff Ellis said organisers were “keeping a close eye on the weather” as he praised the reaction to the weekend line-up.

He said: “The bar was set high across the site and it’s always amazing to witness fans discovering new music from the likes of Swim School and Heidi Curtis.

“We were keeping a close eye on the weather but any showers were overshadowed by an action-packed day of live music.”
