Police warning ahead of concert
Pink will play the event's main stage on the Sunday
Police have warned people without tickets for this weekend's Radio 1 concert to stay away from the event.

A total of 30,000 briefs have been allocated for the Big Weekend event in Dundee on Saturday and Sunday.

Tayside Police said there had been indications that those without tickets may head to the venue to listen to the event from the outside.

However the force said it would be "pointless" for those fans to turn up at the venue, Camperdown Park.

Police added that local by-laws banning the drinking of alcohol in public places would be enforced in all areas of the park outwith the concert boundaries.

'Party atmosphere'

Temporary 40 mph speed restrictions will also be put into force on the city's Kingsway, from the approach to Coupar Angus Road to the Swallow roundabout.

Dundee divisional commander Ch Supt Ian Alexander added: "Those attending the Big Weekend should come prepared for all eventualities and weather conditions so that they can enjoy the party atmosphere in a safe and responsible way."

There are no parking or waiting areas at the concert venue and offending vehicles are likely to be towed away.

Pink, Primal Scream and Keane are among the acts who will play at the event.
