    And I believe at least two of them were built/engineered by the same company.

    I hope the people from Aberdeen havent been watching events unfold in St Helens this week
    Weather seems to be significantly worse every time I have been near Aberdeen!!

    Yes it did, quite a number of glass panels have been blown out of the roof in JKP's warehouse. And the external portaloo was blown over LOL

    Were you on it at the time?

    You should have posted on Tuesday: adds more perspective to the Langtree Park Tornado (that what I'm calling it now) and your info would have quietened down those people who were rattling on about wind speeds - people like me...

    I have just attempted to access CSPs website and it doesn't appear to exist yet or would appear to be in the stages of development on another link. This is a bit concerning as I would think that a firm that claims to be expanding so rapidly would have a website.
    Would redvee if not the club consider emailing them for a clear and transparent answer as to the root cause of the roofing failure? In the interests of spectator confidence and the company's reputation I think this would be helpful.
    I could do it personally but I think if the redvee or the club did it it would have more clout.
    If the company are proactive rather than reactive I would imagine they would be keeping an eye on this forum and RLfans and be preparing a response.
    Posted this on RL fans at first thinking I was on here. Doh!

    Just driven past the ground and there is a group of workmen up on the roof. Hopefully it will be sorted soon!

    I can see your reasoning but I don't believe it is in our remit to request that information.

    I believe that we would be better lobbying the club to release a statement to reassure spectators, which details the cause and remedy.

    Was at Tescos just before dinner so had a look. At that point they seemed to just be tidying things up - taking off the mangled bits and securing the loose bits - didn't see any new going on, but doesn't look like they are hanging around sorting it which is good to see. Also had another nosy at the cafe bar - very nice indeed - looked ready to go though would hope some signage is going up somewhere to draw some attention to it. I am sure somebody mentioned it was opening this week but not seen anything official yet - hope they are planning washing those windows before they do.

    I'm pretty sure you can expect the club to take care of that, please don't ring the club and ask them to find out what the problem is!

    You could make a good few bean/pea cans out of that stuff no wonder the wind flipped it

    Good pictures, but be careful not to give any ammo to gloating Pie & Wire fans.

    The sports bar at Widnes is open every day and night so I am hoping ours will be the same. I don't see the point of a yearly subscription though.
