Security procedures for the north-east’s giant new concert venue could be modified in response to the Manchester attack.
Construction of the £333million replacement for the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) is well underway.
It is due to host its first events in 2019 with the modern facilities near the airport expected to attract big acts to perform in the Granite City.
A spokeswoman said it would be re-examining the precautions built into the blueprint to minimise the chances of it being successfully targeted by terrorists.
“As with any development of this scale, counter terrorism measures are paramount to the design of the venue.
“However, in light of the tragic events last night, we will be looking to review these policies and procedures with Police Scotland and all relevant partners to ensure a safe and secure environment is provided.”
They said there were no plans to cancel any events at the existing AECC in Bridge of Don.
“After the tragic events at Manchester Arena last night, the team at the AECC are aware of the potential heightened level of threat against venues across the country.
“We as a team are in constant communication with Police Scotland and relevant authorities and are continually reviewing our security and safety procedures.
“There are no changes to our planned events at this time. If anything changes, we’ll communicate with customers by email and social media.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of anyone associated with the Manchester Arena incident.”
