Knife alert at gardens concert

Have your say

Rotary Club members and security staff wrestled a man with a knife to the ground before one of the concerts in the Botanical Gardens.

The man, in his mid-20s, had pushed his way through the gates at the Clarkehouse Road entrance and was trying to get into the gardens for the Heaven 17 performance on the Saturday night without a ticket when he produced a knife, said Music in the Gardens joint production manager Andrew Bates.

“About five Rotarians and two security staff got him down to the ground. One of the security guards sustained a cut finger.”
