Fringe revellers urged to ensure they get home safe

Have your say

REVELLERS planning a night out on the final weekend of the Fringe are being urged to make arrangements to ensure they get home safely.

Police issued the advice as they expect a high number of visitors to the city centre.

Chief Inspector Gavin Phillip said: “We would urge revellers to drink sensibly, and to consider what steps they can take to ensure they get home safely at the end of the night.

“It’s advisable for people to ensure their mobile phone is fully charged before they go out, and if for any reason you lose your mobile, then you should keep a list of emergency numbers and some spare change to make a call.

“I would also urge people to remain in the company of their friends, and if possible, to make arrangements to travel home together at the end of the night.

“Late night buses are available and there are a number of taxi ranks in operation throughout the city.”
