Two Sergeants and four extra officers were on duty on the islands during the weekend.

New PC Lisa Woolley told This is Scilly: "It went without incident for us really. No arrests, no crimes related to Gig Weekend. Two people were arrested last year, which tied everyone up, which is why more officers were brought in this time.

"It's better to have more contingency so we can deal with things quicker."

A report by Isles of Scilly Police last November said that 2017's event saw 'several nasty incidents' including two non-drug drink spikings.
