The overarching security regions found it too busy in many places on Ascension Day. The bustle in inner cities and shopping centers in Limburg is described as the greatest challenge.
In a response to the NOS, he says that it was definitely busier on Thursday than the previous weekends and in some places too busy. Bruls sees the biggest challenge in the border region. “Especially in Limburg, in shopping centers and inner cities.”
Bruls fears that the weather will only get busier in the coming weeks and months. “If this becomes the picture of summer, with people on holiday and these beautiful temperatures, then you have to impose much more restrictions on those days.”
Thursday was intervened in several places, on beaches, near puddles and in parks in Amsterdam and Groningen. As far as is known, intervention with measures such as fines and extra deposits was not necessary.
