Orange-coloured drugs shaped like Donald Trump’s head were tested at Bestival and found to contain more than two doses of MDMA.

Not-for-profit company The Loop provided a drug testing service to people who managed to get substances past security at the Dorset festival.

It said the tablets, which had “Trump” stamped on the back, contained more than 250mg of MDMA.

Others have been tested in Europe with different strengths, it added.

Bestival, which held its annual event between 2-5 August, has not yet responded to a BBC request for comment.

The Loop aims to reduce drug-related deaths by revealing the strength of the drugs it finds.
