One man grabbed her at TRNSMT festival, in Glasgow, at 10pm yesterday afternoon while a second then attacked her.

Police Scotland are appealing for help tracing the attackers and for the three men who interrupted the attack to come forward.
The suspects are described as being white, six-foot, of medium build, and as having dark hair.
One was wearing a black t-shirt with a small logo on the front and the other a white t-shirt with black writing.
Detective Sergeant Euan Keil said: ‘The woman was making her way to the toilets when she was grabbed by one man and pulled to the rear of the toilet block where another man sexually assaulted her.
‘Her attackers fled when they were disturbed by three men who were walking by the area and who shouted at them.

‘I don’t think the three men realised what was actually going on or that their intervention probably stopped this attack from escalating.
‘It is important that we trace them as what they saw could prove vital to us catching the two men responsible.’
The woman had been enjoying a night out with her family at the two day festival when the attack happened.
