'No need to use enforcement' after music video gathering, say police

Police say there was 'no need' to use enforcement after a large group gathered in Aylesbury.

We told you earlier that officers were called out to Buckingham Park on Friday evening.

Rapper Sneakbo reportedly turned up on Jubilee Square, after posting on his social media channels asking for people to come and appear in a video.

Some people reported as many as 250 fans turned up to be in the film at one point.

Police did show up, telling us today that 'a number of officers attended the scene and spoke to those involved'.

The large group was dispersed but then seem to have simply moved over to Watermead and gathered in the car park there instead.

But questions remained about why no one was arrested or further action taken as the situation continued for several hours.

A Thames Valley Police spokesperson has now said:

“If officers are out and about, they will engage, ask questions to establish circumstances, and will then explain the regulations and encourage those breaking the rules to go home.

"We will only enforce as a last resort. 

“With regards to this particular incident, officers attended and they engaged, explained and encouraged those in the group to leave. As a result the group dispersed and there was no need to use enforcement as a last resort.”
