The organiser of T in the Park has paid tribute to an Aberdeenshire man who died at the music festival.

David Catto from Newtonhill collapsed on Friday night as he made his way back from the festival arena to a campsite.

It is understood he may have suffered an asthma attack, but a post mortem will take place this week to establish the cause of death.

T in the Park organiser Geoff Ellis described his death as a "tragedy".

Mr Ellis added his condolences were with Mr Catto's family and friends.

Tayside Police said Mr Catto's family visited the site in the early hours of Saturday morning.
