Police are concerned about Glasgow Pride finances

GLASGOW, SCOTLAND - DECEMBER 31: A couple of the same sex Joe Schofield (R) and Malcolm Brown from Tullibody, Clackmannanshire are married by Ross Wright, Celebrant from Humanist Society Scotland in the Trades Hall, Glasgow shortly after midnight in front of friends and family in one of the first same-sex and belief category weddings in Scotland on December 31, 2014 in Glasgow, Scotland. Same-sex couples have been able to enter into 'civil partnerships' since 2005, however following a change in the law on February 4, 2014. A couple of the same sex are now eligible to marry in Scotland. Parliament's decision to grant same-sex couples an equal right to marriage has been met with opposition from religious groups. Gay marriage is already legal in England and Wales, however the Northern Ireland administration has no plans to make it law. (Photo by Mark Runnacles/Getty Images)

The police were allegedly informed of money that was unaccounted by the Pride organizers in 2018. Police in Manchester are already investigating online payments to do with Pride Glasgow after a report of irregularities. The spokesman of the Pride said that the newly-appointed treasurer has contacted the police and commented the actions of his predecessor, who worked on this post for more than a decade and the police tpld them that the investigation was ongoing, but it was on a too early stage for making any conclusions. Revellrs were left queuing for hours outside the park, however, after tickets were oversold. The organizers were forced to adopt a one-in-one-out policy at the entrance, which was stopped completely at around 2pm. The former Pride Glasgow CEO Alastair Smith apologized for the incident before resigning.
