Forest Ground Capacity Reduced to Zero

11 July 16 words: Bridie Squires

The club needs to get a safety certificate holder sharpish - before the friendly with Hull at the end of the month

According to the BBC, the Nottingham Forest City Ground has had to reduce its capacity to zero following an audit which revealed there is no safety certificate holder at the site. They did have one, but that person is unable to fulfil their duty at the moment, so they need to get someone in dead quick.

The place normally holds 30,445 people and the beginning of the season is just around the corner – starting on Saturday 6 August against Burton, following a friendly with Hull on Saturday 30 July.

Talking to BBC Radio Nottingham, Paul McKay, service director for public protection at NCC, said that it was unusual, and that normally these things would have been planned for.

The Council and NFFC are working closely together to ensure the issue is sorted very soon.
