Creamfields: drugs and legal highs will not be tolerated


DRUGS, including legal highs, will not be tolerated at this year’s Creamfields festival at Daresbury, near Warrington.
The warning has gone out to music fans planning to visit the event, starting on Friday, August 28.
It comes from Cheshire Police and Halton Borough Council – in whose area the festival takes place.
People attending the event – the 10th to be held on the site –  will be subject to stringent security checks as they enter the event, which will include both body searches and sniffer dogs, and anyone who refuses to be searched will be denied entry into the event.
Inspector Stewart Sheer said: “Festival goers are reminded that security will be tight at the event. Security measures will be in place and it is important that those attending are aware of these.
“Drug use will not be tolerated and positive action will be taken by police. Searches are a condition of entry and drugs dogs will be used at the entrances to the site.
“Surrender bins will be provided at the entrances for festival goers to place any drugs or weapons into. Anyone found with drugs or weapons, having not placed them into the bins, will be dealt with by police.
“I would advise anyone considering bringing any such items to not bring them in the first place.”
Halton Borough Council’s lead member for community safety, Cllr Dave Cargill, said: “We are all aware of the harm drugs can cause, so we have adopted a zero tolerance approach, in partnership with Cheshire Police.”
Cheshire Police drugs expert Detective Constable Jamie Thompson said: “In addition to illegal drugs, there will also be a zero tolerance approach to legal highs, such as nitrous oxide. Anyone who is found in possession of legal highs will be refused entry into the event.
“The advice is clear – if you are found in possession of any drugs, including legal highs, you will not be allowed into the event, and you may be prosecuted.”
