Sniffer dog plan for Cumbrian rock festival

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.

What faith do you have in rail services in Cumbria improving?

Every. Anything better than what we have currently is an improvement

None. There's little substance to what the Government is saying for the general passenger

It will get better - but only once old trains are taken off the tracks
