A close friend of British Prime Minister David Cameron has been found dead in a portable toilet at the Glastonbury music festival.

Cameron said he was devastated to hear of the death of Christopher Shale, who chaired his West Oxfordshire constituency's Conservative Association. Cameron said Shale was a "close and
valued friend."

It was not immediately clear how Shale died Sunday. Local police confirmed his death, but did not pick up the phone when The Associated Press called asking for further details.

Glastonbury is a fixture of Britain's music calendar. About 170,000 people have descended on a farm in southwestern England for the festival, which includes sets by U2, Morrissey, Mumford & Sons, Coldplay, Beyonce and scores of other acts.
