Newham to call emergency safety advisory board

Newham Council which remains the safety authority for the London stadium have called an Emergency safety advisory board this Thursday and said in a statement on Monday: “Newham Council is extremely concerned about the violent scenes witnessed during Saturday’s match, and utterly condemns the actions of the small minority of troublemakers responsible. In December last year, Newham Council completely withdrew from its position as part owners of the London Stadium, but retains the role of certifying authority. In that capacity, the council, along with the Sports Ground Safety Authority, is urgently reviewing the safety management plans and procedures and staffing of the stadium.

“The evidence gathered and the revised safety management plans will be discussed at an emergency Stadium Safety Advisory Group (SAG) which includes the Metropolitan Police, E20 and West Ham United FC.

“The discussion at the SAG will assist the council before any decision is made regarding future sporting and other events.”

  1. I think we all need a little giggle this morning/afternoon. So as bad as this incident is at least it wasn’t us 🙂
