    Atesh management said: "Our hearts go out to the deceased’s family. This tragic incident has left us extremely saddened. We are still assisting the police with their investigations.

    "We would like to reassure the public and all our loyal customers that this incident did not happen during one of Atesh’s events but during an unconnected promoter’s event who had hired our venue for the day.
