T In The Park organisers have denied that the event will be cancelled due to the threat of bird flu.

Rumours started to spread this week as the festival site is close to a poultry farm.

However a spokeswoman told the Daily Record, "As avian influenza is a disease of birds and not humans, we can confirm that there is no threat of T In The Park being cancelled or moved. Any safety measures being put in place by the Scottish Executive related to avian influenza are designed to limit movement of birds and not people in accordance with the EC agreed measures. However, we are closely monitoring the situation."

The sold-out event will be headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Who over the weekend of July 8-9th.
