A MAN has died and a woman found unconscious at a woodland sex festival near Tunbridge Wells.
Cops arrived at the scene just after 6am where they found the pair, with the man’s death being treated as “unexplained”.
Some 200 people were expected to attend Flamefest, held in Kent woodland, which charges revellers £600 for tickets.
A spokesman for Kent Police said: “Kent Police is making enquiries to establish the circumstances surrounding an unexplained death in Tunbridge Wells.
“Officers were called by South East Coast Ambulance Service at 6.14am on Tuesday August 22 to a medical incident at a campsite in Powder Mill Lane, Tunbridge Wells.
“Patrols and ambulance crews went to the scene where a man was pronounced dead.
“The death is being treated as unexplained at this stage.
“In addition, an unconscious woman received medical treatment and was taken to a local hospital by air ambulance.”
This morning locals saw five police cars and two ambulances at the scene.
Traffic in the area has been disrupted with long delays expected while police officers work at the site.
The festival offers an “adult play area” staffed by dominatrix and a variety of kinky workshops on erotic literature as well as steamy outdoor hot tubs.
Some of those who attended the festival over the weekend expressed disappointment in how it was organised.
Last week event manager Helen Smedly insisted that no sex will be visible to the public and all noise would be controlled amid concern from locals.
She said: “It is a very, very small and private event really.
“We have strict rules on sex and nudity outside one tent which is completely blacked out.
“We are really concerned about the residents and making sure this passes with as little difficulties for them as possible.
“There are three different communities I am bringing together.
“One is the people who love their music, another is the conscious people who care about the environment. The third is the kin community as well.”
A spokeswoman for South East Coast Ambulance Service said: “We can confirm that the Trust was called to a field off Powder Mill Lane, Southborough, at 6am today following reports of two people found unconscious.
“We have a number of resources at the scene including specialists critical care paramedics, Hazardous Area Response Team and Helicopter Emergency Medical Service.
“At this stage we have no further information.”
