A 14-year-old boy was found suffering from the effects of drugs during a pop event in Northumberland at which more than 50 people were arrested.

The youth, who was attending the Hi:Fi North Festival at Matfen Hall Estate on Saturday, is recovering in hospital.

About 3,000 people attended and police made 53 arrests for drug offences in and around the site.

A variety of drugs were also seized in what Northumbria Police described as a "robust" policy.

A police spokesman said: "The policing operation went well.

"We said we'd take a robust approach, and we did this using a variety of resources, including drugs dogs."
