Faizal demonstrated a proactive attitude and courteous behaviour, ensuring the comfort and dignity of festival attendees.

Situation: Sophie, accompanied by a wheelchair user, encountered difficulties with an accessible portaloo due to its poorly designed location.

Overall Experience: Sophie praised the entire security team for their professionalism, creating a safe and welcoming environment.
