Crime Falls At T In The Park Festival
Police have praised concertgoers for a fall in crime at Scotland's T In The Park festival over the weekend (06-08Jul07).
Despite muddy conditions, an increased capacity of 35,000 and the Kinross event expanding from two to three days this year (07), there were only 50 arrests and 470 visits to the hospital tent, both considerably less than in 2006.
Police Chief Superintendent Matt Hamilton tells NME.com, "Encouragingly, arrest figures at T In The Park are much lower than a busy town centre on a Saturday night.
"The numbers are incredibly low given the amount of people on site and we're happy with way things are going."
