Download Festival security guards give out hugs to cheering rock fans

Comments (0) 1

There is so much love at Download Festival2 at the moment that even the security guards are getting in on the act. Two members of barrier security were filmed giving out hugs to cheering rock fans on Saturday evening much to crowd’s delight. The festival-goer on the other side of the hug (a chap in a cap and sunglasses who seemed to have requested the embrace) threw his arms up in triumph after a member of the security team came over to give him a squeeze.

Another security guard then decided to get in on the act and came over to the same festival-goer for a hug before walking away smiling to the sound of the cheering crowd. This isn’t the first act of solidarity between rock fans and the people keeping them safe at this year’s Donington Park festival4. Hundreds of fans have been asking armed police 5officers to pose for selfies with them after cops at the site urged Downloaders to come and say hello.

It is the first time in the festival’s history that armed police have been on site, the decision was revealed last week following the terror attacks in both London and Manchester.

Security boosted at General Election polling stations in Derby as people vote

Comments (0) 1

Security was tight as people in Derby went to vote in the General Election2with the police presence at many polling stations stepped up in the wake of the Manchester and London terrorist atrocities. Janie Berry, city acting returning officer, said that she had worked with Derbyshire police3 in the past 72 hours revisiting previous security plans for the city . She said: “Uniformed police were very visible but there were no armed police on duty and nothing has happened to give rise to concerns about security.

“I am also satisfied that everything has been done to make Derby Arena, where the counts for Derby North,5 Derby South and Mid Derbyshire are taking place, as safe as it can be with 700 people due there tonight from 10pm.”

Ms Berry, who visited many of the city’s 115 polling stations during the day with Derby City Council6 chief executive Paul Robinson, said that she was really pleased with the turn-out of voters.

She said: “Some stations reported queues as the polling stations opened at 7am but there are usually people who want say they were one of the first to vote each time . We always have a higher turn-out for General Elections than local elections but it is too early to say whether more people have voted in this election than previously.”

She was also unable to predict when any of the results would be declared . Ms Berry said: “If I had a pound for every time somebody asks me that, I would be quite rich .

Derby has received a lot of media attention because it was a small marginal of 41 votes in 2015 (in Derby North) and so people want to know when to expect a result.

“But, if it is a close-run thing again, then there could be recounts like last time and I think it is only fair to allow candidates to ask for a recount if there is a reasonable chance it could make it more accurate.”

In previous years, the first results in Derby have come in around 3am but, in 2015, Derby North was only settled after three counts – plus the original count – at gone 8.30am on the Friday morning.

Tight security and tears as Manchester benefit concert kicks off

By Mark Hanrahan1 | MANCHESTER, England

MANCHESTER, England U.S . pop singer Ariana Grande headlined a star-studded benefit concert in Manchester on Sunday that was both joyful and mournful, in aid of victims of the bombing that rocked the city last month, as security fears ran high after attackers in London killed seven people.

Around 50,000 fans crammed into Old Trafford cricket ground under the watchful eye of hundreds of police, including a significant number of armed officers, a sight that would be unusual under normal circumstances.

The show saw performances from big pop acts from both sides of the Atlantic, including local heroes Take That and Liam Gallagher, along with Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Little Mix, Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas, and Grande.

The show was a mix of gaiety and somber reflection – fans could at times be seen jumping for joy, while others, holding banners saying “for our angels”, could be seen wiping away tears . The event began with a moment of silence for the victims of the bombing less than two weeks ago.

“I don t want to feel or hear or see any fear in this building,” U.S . singer Pharrell Williams told the crowd as he led them in a rendition of his hit single “Happy”. “The only thing we ll feel here tonight is love, and positivity.”

Fellow singer Miley Cyrus joined the rendition and said: “I d like to wrap my arms around each and every one of you and thank you .. . The most important responsibility we have in this time is to take care of one another.”

During her set, “Part of Me”, singer Katy Perry told the crowd: “love conquers fear and love conquers hate, and this love you choose will give you strength and it s our greatest power,” before asking the crowd to turn and hug the person next to them.

The somber cause that the concert was being held to benefit was never far from the crowd’s mind . Grande told the audience that her song selection was influenced by the mother of 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, who died in last month’s bombing.

“Sorry” singer Justin Bieber also paid tribute, saying: “I just want to take this moment to honor the people that were lost . We love you so much .

To the families, we love you so much.”

Up to 14,000 of those who attended Grande’s May 22 concert, at which a suicide bomber killed 22 children and adults, were given free tickets to attend Sunday’s show, with some persuaded to attend by their affection for the pop star, and despite their very real concerns about security.

“I m real excited, but real scared,” Shannon Beetham, 14, who was injured in last month’s bombing, told Reuters. “We were there in Manchester (arena) as well, I was hit.”

There were also plenty of upbeat moments, such as when a uniformed police officer was seen holding hands and dancing hand-in-hand with young fans, or when former Oasis front man Liam Gallagher belted out a swaggering version of “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star”.

Grande closed the show by inviting all the other performers on stage to help her sing her 2014 hit “One Last Time”, before she closed with a moving solo version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”.

Fans seemed to have forgotten any lingering fears about security towards the end of the evening, with a lively crowd of middle-aged fans singing “Tonight, I’m a rock and roll star” as they made their way out of the stadium.
