Thankfully there were no serious injuries and I am satisfied with the initial assessment of the way it was policed. However, I know there was disruption to the seafront and the city and it is very important we work in partnership with the businesses and city council to look at the impact it has for any future events. I would especially like to thank residents, traders and visitors for the their patience and co-operation and in particular our colleagues in local authorities, transport providers and other emergency services for their assistance.
