Statement from Our committee in reply to the article on Kent Online
There were 3 organisations marshalling Sittingbourne Carnival on Saturday, Invicta Marshalls, EMUs and an organisation known as The EVOs.
The EVOs were also marshalling an event on the high street in Sittingbourne involving manning the road closure at the junction of the high street and Station Street until the parade closure was official active at 15:45.
The EVOs marshal refused the carnivals safety vehicle (last in the parade driven by an EMU volunteer) access to the high street following the parade at which time members of the EVOs subjected our volunteers to some profanity and an incident occurred. The incident has been reported to the police and we have requested that the CCTV footage of the incident be viewed and used in evidence if required.
Sheppey EMUs would like to publicly state that our members, whilst involved, were not responsible for the profanity described on the Kent online post. An internal investigation has taken place and our findings will be presented to the authorities in the next few days.
Contrary to reports made by the EVOs Chairman in the Sittingbourne News His marshal was not held in a head lock by one of our members. We suggest that Mr Hudson supply some evidence to back up his allegation.
The EMUs have been in existence for over 30 years and are considered a reliable professional organisation.
