Authorities are warning revellers to stay away from a touted “silent rave” in Glasgow.
The unsanctioned gathering was originally planned for the city’s Central Station; however, crowds may now flock to George Square instead.
The British Transport Police (BTP) has revealed organisers were using social networking websites to arrange the unauthorised party and, along with Network Rail, has urged the public to shun the get-together.
Extra resources have been drafted to handle any trouble caused by a “silent rave”, an event which sees participants dance to music playing on their iPods.
Dave Marshall, Chief Inspector of the BTP in Scotland, said: “This does not appear to be a good idea. We don’t want to spoil people’s fun but we do want to make sure the station can continue to operate and passengers and rail staff can travel and work as normal.
“A large number of people in a confined space can cause safety concerns.
“We would encourage those who organise events like this to do so away from the rail network.”
David Simpson, Network Rail route director for Scotland, added: “We will not allow a completely unauthorised event like this to disrupt passenger journeys and we urge any would-be participants or curious bystanders to stay away from the station at this time.”
