Posting on the Creamfields Cop's Twitter account, Seargent Rob Anderson warned: "We have just arrested a suspect for attempting to bring the "Tesla - MDMA" pills we warned about earlier this week into the site.

"Please be very careful with anything you are offered and if you start to feel unwell make immediately to the First Aid on site."

The pills were linked to 20 hospitalisations and one death in Bristol as clubs reopened, with Bristol City council sharing their "concern" over the potentially lethal drugs circulating the city.

Leeds Festival also warned attendees in a push notification not to take the dangerous pills and to seek medical help immediately if they begin to feel unwell - also warning of pink 'Netflix' pills in circulation.
