  • Britney Spears left and ex-husband Kevin Federline right met in court Friday after Federline demanded Spears increase her child support payment to him

Organisers have since had to release a statement following the show - Britney's first in the United Kingdom since 2016 - after fans" "safety was put in jeopardy' due to large crowds left stranded when police shut the city's train station and suspended services to London.

Southern Rail said measures were put in place following concerns of overcrowding, having earlier warned that the station could be closed at short notice. When the barriers opened people were slowly being let in, but this of course led to people being pushed and shoved. "This was chaotic as people were running". Many could not get in the train and were stranded. Over the weekend, Britney gave her first United Kingdom live performance in two years at Brighton Pride, where her show received huge praise from fans.

"This is particularly concerning, given the months of planning and inter-agency working that we undertake each year to make Brighton Pride a safe and happy event". Our train stopped at Three Bridges and there was then chaotic scenes as people tried to change to the London train.

A council spokesman said: "Many people decided not to travel and went to the beach instead, the numbers were added to by others leaving the PVP [Pride Village Party] and also heading to the seafront".

Brighton and Hove city council opened up the Brighton Centre conference venue for people who were stranded but said only nine people turned up.

Britney Spears was the headline act at the country's biggest Pride festival, with organisers anticipating up to 100,000 fans would flood in to Preston Park to watch her show.
