Ter­ror threat will not stop lo­cals go­ing out

Res­i­dents will carry on go­ing to events

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

The horrific ter­ror­ist at­tack in Manch­ester dom­i­nated the news last week.

Twenty-two peo­ple were killed and dozens more in­jured when a sui­cide bomber det­o­nated a de­vice just af­ter the end of a con­cert by the pop singer Ari­ana Grande at the Manch­ester Arena.

We asked Ruther­glen lo­cals whether the ter­ror threat would put them off at­tend­ing any shows or ma­jor events in the fu­ture, or whether they would carry on as be­fore.

Jor­dan Kin­loch, from Ruther­glen, said: “I don’t think it would put me off. I’ve not got any­thing to go to any­time soon, and I might worry about some­thing hap­pen­ing a bit more, but I’d still go.”

David Stevens said: “I sup­pose I’d be very cau­tious, but it wouldn’t put me off. Some­thing like this is very dif­fi­cult to over­come, so you just hope that it is un­likely to hap­pen with an event that you are go­ing to.”

Steven Wat­son said: “I think it’ll be a big shock to a lot of peo­ple, and they wouldn’t go (to events). I’d still go to things though. The world’s gone men­tal. Some­one said on Face­book the other night that no-one in the govern­ment can get things done and stop these peo­ple com­ing in.”

Andy Walker, from Cam­bus­lang said: “You have to keep your eyes open nowa­days, just in case there is any­thing, but I go to a lot of con­certs and it won’t put me off. My kids are grown up now but if they were a bit younger I might not let them go them­selves.”
