Scottish singer sees all
Scottish singer Eddi Reader has spoken out about her shock at witnessing an “aggressive” street attack just moments before heading to her gig at the Music Hall last night.
Fans at the sold-out concert had to wait almost 30 minutes for the singer to come on stage as she stood on Union Terrace filming the shocking incident.
She later posted on social media about being traumatised by the incident and that she had sent her footage to the police.
Where were the “city Wardens” in Aberdeen Union terrace when the maurading agressive youths were marauding? What’s the deal with those guys? Is it only Aberdeen who have them?
