However, residents have said this is not representative of the wider disorder during the festival, with photographs emerging showing young teenagers drinking in private gardens and peeing on homes. 

Reports of revellers pooing and snorting lines of cocaine outside houses have also been shared with the Evening Times. 

Violence and intimidation was also something that the public were made to deal with over the weekend, with images showing men fighting in a playpark on Stevenson Street with children just yards away. 

Evening Times:

While there was a police presence around the festival, with multiple vehicles close to the site, those living nearby say they would have liked more patrols to stop crowds gathering outside homes. 

One woman, who lives on Waterside Place close to the St Andrew's Suspension Bridge, said she was terrified when walking near her home. 

She added: "I was home all weekend and had to try and cross through all of the carnage.

"This year really attracted the wrong crowd - a lot of teens were clearly on something.

"People were so unpredictable. I didn't feel safe.

"They were p****** on buildings and leaving their rubbish everywhere, lots of peeing and pooing everywhere. There is now a rotten smell."

Others living on the other side of the event space shared similar stories. 

Evening Times:

One, who lives in the Templeton Building on Stevenson Street, claims members of the public were snorting lines of cocaine on the street outside their home and defecating on their property. 

Another, living on Arcadia Place in Bridgeton, said that neighbours were forced to confront the drinking teenagers themselves, and were verbally abused as a result. 

She added: "I have lived here all three years TRNSMT has been on and it has never been this bad - it is ten times worse. It seemed to be taken over by underagers.

"There were big crowds of kids sitting, drinking and dumping their rubbish. 

"We challenged people but they were urinating on our houses and in our bin shelters. It's very intimidating. 

"People were throwing off our grass and people were sitting on our cars.

"If this is meant to be an inclusive festival for the city, this is not the image they should be encouraging."

As a result, calls have come from residents for greater police patrols in the area during future events. 

Evening Times:

Some would like to see stricter rules enforced on alcohol and substance abuse for those visiting the city for TRNSMT. 

They say that if trouble such as this cannot be policed effectively, the festival should not be held in the city and instead moved to a rural setting.

The Arcadia Place resident added: "This isn't the place for a festival, and they might need to look at some sort of alcohol ban. 

"They could even breathalyse people who are going in. That could be a deterrent as it should not just be a massive p*** up."

Superintendent Simon Jeacocke from Police Scotland said: “Police Scotland officers met on numerous occasions with the organisers of the event and also Glasgow City Council and local residents in preparation for the TRNSMT festival and to ensure the weekend event passed with as little disruption as possible to the people living in the vicinity of Glasgow Green.

“There were additional patrols in the surrounding area and a dedicated resident hotline was set up where the local people could report any issues or concerns to police.

"Police officers responded to several calls over the weekend which were dealt with immediately and the issues were resolved.”

A festival spokesperson said: “We’re aware of a small number of incidents outside the TRNSMT site. While these incidents aren’t reflective of the majority of people who came to the festival to enjoy themselves, and who have been praised for their good spirits and behaviour, we always ask that all festival goers respect our neighbours in both Glasgow Green and the city itself.

“Our local resident’s enquiry line was established to allow us to keep in close contact with our neighbours at Glasgow Green, and we’ve been able to act upon issues quickly thanks to the calls made.

"Working with our partners at Police Scotland and G4S, residents’ concerns were passed over to ensure resources were deployed at areas surrounding Glasgow Green, following engagement with residents to deal with any specific issues quickly.

“Overall our engagement with the local community was extremely positive and we thank everyone for their input and ongoing support.

"Having a strong relationship with the local community is extremely important to us and we want to maintain that level of trust as we head into the debrief from the festival this year, to further improve on the experience in 2020.”
