@steelmen pins said: “How rigorous are the searches for the GG Fan Zone? My friend saw the prices of beers and was thinking a hip flask may be a good idea. Definitely my friend asking.”

Paul Roche wrote on Facebook: “Zero atmosphere and even less fun.

“People wearing face masks in a public park outside.

“£6 a pint and £12 for a frozen pizza. This should have been a celebration and enjoyed. Why are people putting up with this nonsense and accepting it as anything like normal!”

Graeme McCormick said: “Worst beer I have ever drank in my life!

“£6 a pint too. Shocking!”
