Large police presence at The Cornerhouse over fears for public safety

There was a large police presence at The Cornerhouse in Burton Street last night (30 March), following concerns over public safety.

A large number of people had gathered to attend an event inside the venue at around 11.45pm.

Following a request for police assistance from the venue when it became apparent they were already full and had a large crowd still trying to gain entry and unwilling to leave, officers attended.

Road closures were put in place in Burton Street and South Sherwood Street for around an hour, while the situation was resolved.

No members of the public suffered any injuries during the incident.
