18 August 2021

Wembley Stadium has committed to holding an independent review led by Baroness Casey of Blackstock into the violence at this summer’s  UEFA European Football Championship which saw Disabled people physically attacked after accessible entrances to the Stadium were stormed by ticketless fans.

Calling the scenes “shocking and appalling” and those who contributed to them “yobs”, a Wembley spokesperson told DR UK that the Stadium management “will be looking to take specific action on the disability access entrances and are currently exploring the options for a structural change to these entrances at all of our general admission turnstiles.”

They went on: “We will of course consult with our disabled fans before making any structural changes.”
