“Aberdeen should be aspiring to host these sorts of major events, but in the future it is very clear the management of the crowd at the end of the event needs to improve.
“People were left to make their own way towards the exit, and as a result the crowd was too large for the exit that had been created in the fencing. There was no attempt to funnel the crowd to avoid people being up against the fence and trying to get to the exit point.
“It was extremely fortunate that the anxiety and frustration being experienced by the crowd did not lead to a crush, and there was a total absence of any stewarding or security at the exit.
“AECC ought to be investigating what happened so that any lessons can be learned and applied for future events to avoid people’s enjoyment of the event being tarnished.”
