The organisers of a Bristol festival going ahead this weekend have said that they are working closely with the city's Police and Bristol City Council, following their recommendations for the security policy of the event.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to fill Eastville Park on Saturday and Sunday for Love Saves The Day, which has had the likes of Dizzee Rascal and Hot Chip grace its main stage.

In the wake of the Manchester terror attack the festival's organisers have released the following statement:

We have spent many months working closely with the Avon and Somerset Police and the Local Authorities around the planning of our event - following their recommendations for the security policy of the show and working with them on site on the days of the event.

Love Saves The Day considers audience safety as our primary and fundamental concern at all times when running the festival. We have robust plans in place for the safe running of the festival and will continue to review these up to the days of and during the event.

What we ask of those attending the festival is their patience and understanding of our security policies and the team working hard here to ensure your safety and enjoyment of the festival. With the cooperation and positive attitudes that our audience always bring to our events - we are certain this will be achieved.

– Love Saves The Day
