Attendees of this weekend’s first ever Pride event in Dundee are being warned of searches ahead of the event in the City Square.
Thousands from the LGBTI community are expected in the city for the event on Saturday.
A Pride march will start in the Murraygate leading to a festival in the square around 1pm.
The square is to be cordoned off with a security checkpoint in place. The only entrance to the site is via the entry point on the High Street.
Alcohol is prohibited, however there will be a bar open within the festival site until 7pm.
Controlled drugs and weapons will also be confiscated and police informed.
A statement on the Pride website read: “To ensure the safety & well-being of those in attendance to the event, there will be a security checkpoint at the entrance to the event where SIA Licensed Security Personnel will be carrying out person searches using Security Wands.
“Sign language interpreters will be on site to explain procedures to any of our deaf participants.”
An additional statement urged attendees to report abuse should they see or hear anything untoward.
It said: “We will have security staff, event staff and volunteers helping keep the event safe for everyone.
“There will also be police and community wardens around for the Parade and the event in City Square.
“However, if you see something suspicious, worrying or of concern, please let one of the event team know immediately.”
