The photograph above was taken from a high vantage point above Olympic Way at 10pm as fans made their way to Wembley Park station from the Spurs v Manchester United match. As usual stewards held fans back (bottom centre in high visibility jackets) while the station platforms were cleared.
The match had the highest ever attendance at a premier league match which Spurs celebrated:
However, on Facebook others were concerned about such large numbers packed into a restricted space. One person remarked, 'A tragedy waiting to happen' and another, 'Nothing learnt from Hillsborough it seems.' A Brent resident said, ' Looks scarey to me. Please remind me not to go to Wembley Stadium for an event, or on an Event Day. I forget, most of us residents that can, already avoid the entire area just in case it's an Event Day.'
A year ago today I publicised Spurs application to remove the capacity cap and increase the number of events.
The next big match,which may record a new record attendance is Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal on Saturday February 10th, kick-off 12.30 pm.
I advise families not to take their children to change their books at Wembley Library on that day!
