Rutland County Council Statement on the event at Rutland Showground

Date Published: 20 June 2021
Rutland County Council

Rutland County Council is aware of the religious festival that is currently being hosted at Rutland Showground and the reports of disturbances in the community. 

Our top priority is to protect residents and businesses and we are working closely with the Police and showground to do this. 

The Police are increasing patrols around the county, particularly in Oakham and the surrounding area and are putting in place special measures to ensure the continued protection of the community. They are in ongoing communication with the event organisers.

We are also looking at any action that could be taken under COVID-19 regulations.

Residents are urged to report any crimes online at https://www.leics.police.uk/ro/report/ (quoting reference log 186 of 19 June 2021) or by calling 101, or 999 in an emergency.
