We have long been concerned about the use of security services at UK festivals, most provided by companies who don't seem to understand that they are dealing with paying cusomers.

Many seem to think that everyone who attends a festival is scum and should be treated as a criminal with even the most inocuous contact turning into a full scale confrontation.

This weekend security at Beach Break Live takes the biscuit - threatening, unreasonable, unpleasant, aggressive and worse - I'm sure there will be a lot more to say about this particular company.

The question is - why do security behave in this manner? perhaps more importantly - why do festival organisers let them get away with it?

The more I hear about Coast to Coast Security at Beach Break Live the more concerned I am about the behaviour of this particular company. Coast to Coast security told a photographer that he 'would kill him' - his crime? asking for water to be given to members of the crowd sqeezed in at the barrier.

Coast to Coast Security refused to give out water to the crowd at the barrier throughout the festival, I have never heard of a security company refusing to do this before.

Disgrace to the industry and can't find them on companies house either so not a LTD company as they say.

But as they say as i'm guessing they're cheap as chips, you pay for what you get frown
