Statement on Wireless Festival Chaos



Following the chaos at Wireless Festival over the weekend, Councillor Nick da Costa (LD-Highgate), Haringey Opposition Spokesperson for Crime & Communities, said:
“Liberal Democrats were clear before this weekend that the number and size of events in Finsbury Park needs to be reduced, and the chaos at Wireless Festival this weekend reinforces that.
