Funderworld to be Reviewed

Following consultation with various groups, including the police, Bristol City Council is reported to be reviewing its decision to allow Funderworld to run its annual funfair on the Downs this Easter.

As previously reported on this blog, Funderworld has acquired an unfortunate reputation as a magnet for violent attacks and other anti-social behaviour during its time in Bristol and it is understood that part of the Council's review will involve discussions with the Nottingham-based funfair about its level and quality of security staffing at the event.

If this review results in a safer event - even if it means we miss it for a year - that is welcome development.
