Police say that the May Fair in Boston has so far been free of the type of trouble that marred the family event last year.

Police, council and other organisers last year decided that the May Fair would closer earlier in the evening due to trouble at the event.

However, a force spokesman said that after the first few days of this year’s event there had been no repeat of the problems.

They said the event has seen a continued police presence alongside staff from Boston Borough Council and the event security.

Potential trouble makers have been spoken to as soon as they have been seen at the Fair and the spokesman said up to now they have heeded police advice.

Boston’s Community Policing Inspector Dave Rimmer said: “It’s a case of so far so good, and the fair has been a safe and enjoyable place to be.

“I am particularly pleased with how well the Police, Boston Borough Council and the Event Security are working together at the Fair.

“We will maintain our presence and our no nonsense stance with anyone seeking to cause problems.”

The fair continues until Saturday.
