Terror fears played down ahead of Lammas Market
Robust security arrangements in place for popular annual funfair
Fears of a Nice-style terror attack have been cooled ahead of the return of a Fife funfair.
Organisers of next month’s Lammas Market say robust security arrangements will be in place to keep thrillseekers safe ahead of the St Andrews carnival.
That comes despite a significantly increased security presence in Kirkcaldy earlier this year for the annual Links Market, where showmen strategically placed their lorries to prevent a vehicle being used as a deadly weapon.
While police have claimed suitable security arrangements are in place ahead of the event, Councillor Jane Ann Liston is warning revellers to remain vigilant.
