MANAGEMENT AT London’s 10,000-capacity Alexandra Palace felt compelled to defend their crowd management strategy after 25-year-old Ali Mills died at a Bring Me The Horizon concert on 30 November.

Medics arrived within three minutes of being called after the NHS worker suffered a cardiac arrest during the event, but he could not be revived.

Speculation on social media about a lack of staff was refuted by venue management, saying on Twitter, “We feel we must address inaccurate information. There were over 150 security personnel on site for the concert.

“We would like to clarify that this was a tragic medical incident and unrelated to the extensive security measures in place.”

Upcoming concerts at the venue feature Parkway Drive, Chvrches, Good Charlotte, Jungle and Robyn.
