A tense and frightening night

Team of the Month – public multinational chemical company near Manchester, Security Team

Working in partnership with our client during a tense and frightening night

In June, an illegal rave took place near Manchester that was attended by over 2000 people. The police were unable to close the rave down because of the high numbers of young people taking part and due to safety issues.

As the rave was very close to our client’s site, where we provide a range of services including security, there were a number of security breaches as the young people scaled the fence. Our team escorted some ten people off the site, from various points, as well as deterring crowds of more than 50 who were trying to come in through the main gate.

Our security team was busy for almost ten hours, as our control room operator continuously monitored the CCTV system and directed their colleagues.

What was a normal Saturday night shift quickly escalated into a tense and often frightening night. The police reported numerous large fights, and violent crime incidents.

Our team worked in partnership with our client remaining exceptional and professional, and demonstrating teamwork and the real strength of our ‘One Team, One Goal’ ethos.

We are very proud of you all and our client has given high praise to the professionalism of our security team in such unusual and challenging conditions.
