Ter­ror fears played down ahead of Lam­mas Mar­ket

Ro­bust se­cu­rity ar­range­ments in place for pop­u­lar an­nual fun­fair

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - Jonathan wat­son

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.
