Five people were arrested during the Tramlines music festival in Sheffield, police have confirmed today.

Officers praised the ‘fantastic atmosphere’ and said the event had showcased the ‘best of Sheffield’ after it came to a close on Sunday.

They have now confirmed that five people were arrested and one was cautioned for minor public disorder offences and possession of drugs over the three days.

A police spokesman said officer also used 12 orders to make revellers leave an area as ‘a preventative tool to disperse people’.

Superintendent Scott Green said on Sunday: “There have been no major incidents or noticeable increases in crime across the city centre or any of the event venues, which is testament to the positive, buzzing atmosphere created by such an exciting festival.

“I know I speak for all of the officers working the event when I say we have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with the public and making the most of a beautiful weekend.”

Headliners at this year’s festival included Katy B, Public Enemy and Sister Sledge, with organisers booking bigger acts to encourage people to pay the £12 a day ticket cost.
