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.

Have we reached saturation point with bars in the city?

No - the more the merrier. It helps to have choice

Yes - we could do with more specialist shops, not bars

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
