Joint comment from Borough of Poole and Dorset Police:
“Borough of Poole and Dorset Police have been liaising with the land owners and event organisers of a horse and drive fair, which was due to take place at the end of November.
“Both organisations, along with Poole Highways and other partners, were all in attendance at a number of meetings which took place to discuss the event in greater detail.
“Representatives from the event organisers and land owners were also present.
“All public bodies within Poole and the surrounding area have public safety as their key concern, which is why these kinds of meetings take place.
“Unfortunately, the authorities were unable to obtain all of the necessary information from the organisers about the proposed three day event, including the number of expected attendees and programme of events.
“Further contact was made with the organisers and land owners to highlight their legal duties, including the health and safety of its attendees.
“The land owners and event organisers later contacted us and informed us that the event had been cancelled.”
