Burnley FC post losses of £28m in financial accounts as impact of Premier League...

During the first-half of tonight’s Premier League clash against Wolves, police officers and stewards were spotted moving into a block in the lower tier of the Jimmy McIlroy Stand.

The majority of fans in that section have been forced to leave the area entirely, but a small number have been able to remain.

Police have cordoned off the main area though which sits directly underneath the piece of metal in question.

An announcement over the PA system said the block closure would remain in place for the entirety of the game.

The fans that were moved have been sent to the fan zone outside the ground to watch the remainder of the game.

In a statement, the Clarets said: "Burnley fans are in the process of being moved from a section of the Jimmy McIlroy stand due to current safety concerns with the roof.

“We thank supporters for their co-operation and patience while we do this.”
