    What a terrific use of police resources. Fifteen officers in that one photo alone, just to shut down a music event?

      A music event that causes misery to everyone within a mile radius of it. Selfish and inconsiderate. Well done the police.

    Yes but understand the Police like other emergency workers do not always know what situations they are walking in to. They were acting after numerous reports from the public.

    They do not know how many people are attending the event There could have been weapons drugs etc on people attending the event. The police do not know this when they first turn upto be fair.

    Covid-19 is still out there with new new cases still being confirmed in the Borough. But i am guessing social distancing was not being observed as the area in the photo does not look that big,

    Please be sensible adhere to social distancing and keep safe out there !!
