Policing Reading Festival – update

Posted: 25/08/2007 17:12:46

As of 10.30am today (25/08), a total of 160 offences have been reported to police at this years Reading Festival, around 178 fewer than last year.

There have been 48 tent related thefts and police are urging people not to valuables unattended and if possible, avoid bringing anything valuable to the site.

There have been 31 arrests so far and 42 people have been cautioned for possession of cannabis.

Supt Steve Hockin, who is overseeing the operation, said: “Traffic seems to be flowing in the town but I would still urge motorists to avoid Richfield Avenue.

“Crime levels are low but we would encourage people to remember that their valuables are vulnerable when they are not with them. The atmosphere in and around the festival is very good and we are managing to police the event without it having a significant impact on the day-to-day policing of the town.”

Supt Hockin is also urging people not to be tempted to buy tickets from touts. He said: “I would like to remind people not to buy tickets from touts as there is a serious risk that the tickets will be false and you will be wasting your money. It is a big risk. Please don’t to be tempted to buy second-hand wristband as you will be denied entry with these.”
