    This wonderful event is marred by the fact that hundreds of residents on sheepcote street are trapped, with no other vehicle exit or access from King Edwards Wharf, Liberty Place and Symphony Court. We have had several major events in Birmingham and accept a degree of inconvenience but this is the first time Sheepcote street has been closed. Whoever made this decision obviously does not know the area. Please think again before any future events.
    If an emergency vehicles needed access, the closure of Sheepcote street would cause a serious problem for so many people.
