Man arrested and Nitrous Oxide seized ahead of Parklife festival

Greater Manchester Police and Parklife security continue to work together to tackle anti-social behaviour, crime and drug dealing in all it’s forms to ensure those attending the event are safe, and minimise disruption to our local communities.

Shortly after 3pm on Friday 7 June, security staff detained a suspicious male within the event site and seized significant quantities of Nitrous Oxide, which is now a Class C drug.

A 34-year-old man was arrested by police on suspicion of possession with intent to supply and remains in custody while the investigation continues.

Superintendent Andy Sidebotham, who leads the Parklife policing operation this year, said: “We will work tirelessly this weekend – alongside event security and our partners – to prevent and tackle any criminality brought by a small number of people who attend the event or the local area. This is to help ensure that the majority of genuine festival-goers and residents have a safer and more enjoyable weekend.”
