Council statement on Bute Park
A council spokesperson said: “Our thoughts are with those affected by the recent incidents in Bute Park. Prior to the pandemic, key city centre entrances to Bute Park were locked every night at sunset. The park is a large public open space, and while it is not possible to prevent access after dark entirely, following the two recent serious incidents in the park, a decision has been taken to return to this locking regime with immediate effect."
