Paley, 43, is described as being 5ft 6ins tall, and has connections to London and Canvey4.

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.
