Alexandra Palace and Lock N Load Events are deeply shocked and saddened by the two fatalities that occurred over the weekend.
The Police are being fully assisted in their ongoing investigation and have commented that they are happy with the procedures the venue and event organiser had in place.
Alexandra Palace works closely with its local authority, all emergency services and event organisers to ensure that the correct policies for public safety are in place during all events. Both the venue and last weekend’s event organiser operate a zero tolerance drugs policy and employed security teams to enforce all measures possible to protect visitors.
All those involved in the two events extend their deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the two men and our thoughts are with the man currently in hospital who we are told is in a critical but stable condition.
