A WORKER has died after an apparent accident at a festival site near Stroud.

Gloucestershire Constabulary said officers were called to Sallywood Farm, Horsley at noon today along with other emergency services, following a report of an incident there.

A force spokesman said it appeared the person who died was helping set up the festival and there appeared to have been an accident involving agricultural equipment. He said because it appeared to be an industrial accident, Stroud District Council is investigating.

It is understood the worker was not employed by the farm.
