Police make 'number of arrests' at Pride festival

This is one of the biggest policing operations we manage, and it could not happen without the support and hard work from all those involved and the thousands of people who travel from far and wide to attend it and help make it an amazing and fun event.

– Chief Superintendent Paul Morrison - Gold commander at Pride

Officers have made a number of arrests today, which is expected at such a large event. If you have come to the city with friends then stick together, have fun but make sure you all go home together - I don't want anyone to end up with not so pleasant memories of their Pride weekend. I would like to wish everyone a fun and safe evening and a pleasant journey home.
