Dramatic video shows fans smash down barriers as venue ‘reviews security’ – Diverse Bulletin

Video captured the chaotic scenes at the O2 Arena on Sunday which showed swarms of people pushing past security staff and gates to get inside the main arena. Workers failed to stop the crowds who were desperate to see Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ tour as bosses review the events. It comes following the scenes at Travis Scott’s Astroworld festival which saw 10 people die and the shocking scenes at the Euro 2020 final which saw football fans trying to enter Wembley by force.

Footage shared by Twitter account @98Toks showed large crowds swarming into the O2 Arena as staff desperately tried to hold them back.

Security barriers were also destroyed with crowds looking for ways to get into the main area.

A metal detector was knocked over with the video also showing a woman pushing a security guard.

Event bosses issued new advice for Wizkid’s remaining shows this week and urged people to arrive early to pass security checks.

A venue spokesperson said “Last night, a breach of the security cordon on the arena entrance occurred and as a result, a number of fans in the queue were able to enter the venue.

“The situation was quickly contained by staff and the incident resolved.

“The venue is reviewing security procedures for the remaining shows this week and advises fans to arrive early for security checks tomorrow night and again on Wednesday.”

The family’s lawyers wrote: “Your client’s offer is declined. I have no doubt Mr. Scott feels remorse. His journey ahead will be painful. He must face and hopefully see that he bears some of the responsibility for this tragedy.”

Wembley stadium was also the victim of fans attempting to break in during the Euro 2020 finals with footage emerging of staff struggling to keep order.

Footage also showed ticketless fans being attacked by some attendees who tried to help security with the breach.
