Terror threat will not stop locals going out
Residents will carry on going to events
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.”
