Temple Street Children's Hospital raising security for 1D gigs

Temple Street Children's Hospital in Dublin is upping security in preparation for the One Direction concerts this weekend.

The hospital is also due to hold a meeting about implementing an emergency contingency plan.

According to the Irish Independent, Temple Street Hospital is recruiting extra security staff and back-up plans are in progress in the event of a large volume of Emergency Department traffic over the weekend.

The extra precautions are being taken to ensure that the hospital, which is a short distance from Croke Park, is prepared for all situations given the thousands of children and teenagers due to attend the concerts.

Promoters MCD have already warned that strict restrictions will be in place at the stadium.
