Oasis fans are trying to cheat a drugs ban by going underground.

They have been burying stashes of drugs and drink at the site of next week's Loch Lomond concerts.

And the stashes, buried over the last few weeks, will be dug up at the big event.

The fans, armed with spades, have been secretly visiting the site at Balloch Country Park to find likely spots to conceal their drugs and carry-outs.

Home-made treasure maps are being drawn up so that they can find the spot where they have buried drugs, including Ecstasy and cannabis, when they return.

Locals say Oasis fans have been regularly visiting the site since the concert was announced.

And the fans have told them that they are burying drink because they fear alcohol sold at bars in the venue will be too dear.

Around 80,000 people are expected to attend both concerts on the banks of Loch Lomond.

Police are aware of the scam and plan to take action. "Every precaution will be taken to ensure there is as little trouble as possible," they said.

Plain-clothes officers will mingle with the fans to hunt down people using and dealing drugs.

The Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel, are planning to arrive at the concert by a boat.

The Manchester-based bad lads of rock have hired a luxury cruiser to sail them to and from the mammoth gig.

And the name of the boat they will be using is... the GIN SLING!
