I am embarrassedabout the security at Latitude.
They couldnt even steward the toilet arrangements.A joke really.
Security are meant to make sure that festival. goers enjoy themselves in a safe,secure environment.What did happen was that too many security were visible instead of a low key presence.Then some of the security decided to search the campsites and confiscate contraband.
Let me point out that I am SIA and I know my law.
Security can only search at the gate according to "condition of entry",after that its down to the police,even they have restrictions.
If you have a problem with a member of security at an event then get their number and report them to the security industry association,hopefully they will get their license revoked.We all need to rid ourselves of idiots like this.
Hopefully Latitude organizers will get a professional security company next year,of with there are a few.Then everyone will enjoy the festival without the stormtrooper mentality that drags us down.
