A reveller at a music festival has become an unlikely internet star after he tweeted that he had been packed into a tent bag and could not escape.

Scott Johnston tweeted ‘T in the Park’ organisers this morning to say he was stuck as campsites at the Perthshire venue emptied.

He said: "Hi im somewhere in green 7 someone has packed me into a tent bag for a joke and I can't get out I don't have much battery left."

Police Scotland then tweeted: "Hi Scott please tweet us with more info if you can. We have officers with stewards in the area looking for you now."

His initial tweet was shared more than 5,000 times.

Almost two hours later, Mr Johnston told his followers he was ok, his friends had unzipped him and he had "never been so happy to see the rain".

However, it is understood his original tweet was a prank.

The police are, understandably, not amused.
