    STATEMENT: BRANDON STADIUM MONDAY 15 JANUARY 2018 SEVERAL videos/pictures of Brandon have been posted on social media in the last few days which are upsetting people. We can understand therefore that feelings are running high. However, it is irresponsible for people to suggest fans visit the stadium to ‘help themselves’ to mementos and we urge people NOT to try getting into the stadium. The stadium is in a dangerous state and we should also consider the local residents, who deserve some respite from recent events. Recent entries into the stadium are now being reported to the police by local residents. Additionally, it is not helpful that people are ‘writing off’ Brandon. Yes, it is in a shocking state as a result of Brandon Estates failing to secure the site. Despite this, it CAN be restored - and this is currently a far more realistic possibility than finding new land which is not in the green belt, and overcoming all manner of obstacles and objections to get planning permission. Our campaign has tremendous momentum with the Borough Council, Brandon and Binley Woods Parish Councils, Speedway and stock car fans, the local Member of Parliament, numerous Councillors and most importantly, the vast majority of local residents all opposing the redevelopment of the stadium. As a Campaign Group, we will stand firm and continue to do EVERYTHING we can, in a responsible manner, to stop the redevelopment. A further comment from Save Coventry Group

    How true that is. I think that deep down many fans realise that the Leicester thing doesn't help the bees cause in any way.

    I expect that they will think that throwing it all back into the councils lap will put added pressure on them to allow the planning to go through when the application" goes in". There is without doubt a method in their madness.

    The gypsies have now departed Brandon after the intervention of the Rugby Council leader.. Lets hope more pressure is put on Brandon Estates to ensure proper security oh the site.

    I nearly fell over in laughter at the last paragraph in the SCB statement.. Mick Horton has no plans to return the bees to Brandon anytime, even if it were possible.

    There has been a fire at Brandon apparently . The old turnstile block has been damaged. Fortunately a neighbour called the fire brigade and saved further damage. With the Gypsies being present on site the photos make a very sad sight. Report & photos from Jeff Davies Fire at Brandon has destroyed a turnstile block but would have been much worse but for the vigilance of a local resident.

    Even the BSPA suspicious of Horton's motives? It doesn't get much worse than that.
