Sniffer dog plan for Cumbrian rock festival
Last updated at 12:20, Thursday, 07 February 2013
A plan to introduce sniffer dogs to detect drugs at this July’s Cockermouth Rock Festival at Wellington Farm has been agreed.
The call for the sniffer dogs came after Cumbria police were called out 22 times at last year’s festival for a number of incidents including drug overdoses, assaults, drink-driving, disorder and criminal damage.
Allerdale council’s licensing panel agreed to festival conditions which include having a professional security team being appointed, ticket holders being searched on entry, a drugs dog being at the entrance to the site, and also controls to curb excessive or underage drinking.
