What to do in an Emergency
If you witness or are a victim of a crime at the event, please inform a member of our staff, stewards or security personnel who will all be easily identifiable on site. The quicker an incident is reported, the quicker we can act.
If you need to contact the Metropolitan Police to report a non-emergency crime or to provide information on a crime while at the festival, please call 101. In the unlikely event that you are unable to find a member of staff or security, please call 999.
Terrorist attacks are rare in the UK, but recent events have shown that an attack could happen anywhere and without warning. Staying as calm as possible and knowing how to react in an emergency is important.
- Arrive early at events to allow time for extra security measures.
- Be patient with security checks and help the staff to help you. It might be inconvenient but they are there to keep you safe.
- If you spot someone acting suspiciously, report it to the police or to a security staff immediately, don’t leave it to someone else #ActionCountersTerrorism.
- In an emergency, if you think there is an immediate risk, always call 999 and look around you for help from security or stewards – especially those with radios who can raise the alarm quickly.
- Don’t leave bags unattended or anywhere they could cause a security scare.
- Never agree to look after a stranger’s bags, no matter how plausible their story.
- If there is an incident, please remain calm, listen to staff and any announcements. Organisers will have emergency plans to help you keep safe.
- During an incident, people sometimes think that filming on phones would be good to provide evidence for Police but your safety is always the main priority, do not put yourself at risk
- Always keep some charge in your phone so that you can make a call or be contacted in an emergency
Remember, the chance of being caught in a terrorist incident is small but if it happens – RUN, HIDE, TELL.
