UEFA confirm Europa League final to go ahead but will increase security in wake of Manchester attack

European football’s governing body, UEFA, have confirmed that the Europa League1 final between Manchester United2 and Ajax3 in Stockholm will go ahead following the tragic events at Manchester Arena on Monday night. A terror attack4 at an Ariana Grande concert left 22 people dead and 59 injured. UEFA have two major finals in the next 11 days, with Wednesday’s clash followed by the pinnacle of the European season on Saturday week – the Champions League final in Cardiff.

They have been liaising with Swedish police ahead of the match in Stockholm for a number of months, increasing their detail following the Stockholm terror attack5 in April, which left five people dead and 15 other injured when a hijacked truck was eliberately driven into crowds along Drottninggatan,. Seeking to allay fears, UEFA have stated that there is “currently no specific intelligence” that the final will be targeted. UEFA have urged supporters travelling to the Friends Arena that “detailed checks” will take place upon arrival.

“UEFA is shocked by last night’s attack in Manchester .

Our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those affected,” read the statement.

“There is currently no specific intelligence which might suggest that any of the UEFA Europa League final activities in Stockholm may be the target of attacks.

“UEFA has been closely working with local authorities and the Swedish FA for many months and the terrorist risk had been taken into account since the very beginning of the project.

“Furthermore, a number of additional security measures were implemented following the attacks in Stockholm last April.

“Due to the tight security arrangements, UEFA urges fans to arrive at the stadium as early as possible, as detailed checks will be made at the entrances, resulting in potential in accessing the stadium.”

United fly out to the Swedish capital on Tuesday, ahead of the clash with the Dutch giants .

They are expected to ask UEFA if they can wear black armbands.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin offered his condolences

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin added: “I am deeply saddened by the horrible terrorist attack in Manchester last night.

“It shocks me that so many innocent people lost their lives and I would like to send my condolences to the families of those affected.”

Shop security guards emerge as heroes following Chelmsley fire

A pair of quick-thinking security guards at a Solihull shopping centre helped to evacuate terrified residents after a fire tore through the roof of a nearby tower block . The fearless guards at Chelmsley Wood1 Shopping Centre were on patrol when they spotted the flames and smoke coming from the top of the building in nearby Moorend Avenue. As shoppers watched the drama in horror, the brave duo sprinted across to the block, which is managed by Solihull 2Community Housing (SCH) and alerted the concierge to the danger.

Smoke from the fire in Chelmsley Wood

The plucky twosome, who would not be named, swiftly took to the stairs and banged on the doors of the flats in the 10 storey building. Residents told the Birmingham Mail they had been unaware of the blaze which could be seen for miles away after the fire took hold at around 1.45pm. Twenty-five firefighters3 tackled the incident and gave oxygen therapy to one man who was injured.

Residents from the top two floors were evacuated.

The fire at the block of flats in Moorend Avenue Chelmsley Wood

One of the security guards said: There didn t seem to be a fire alarm in the block.

We tried to find one so that we could actually hit a panic button.

My colleague went to the top floor and I started on the fifth so we worked it between us.

We were there for about five to 10 minutes but it seemed longer.

We didn t think about it, we just went in to help . Then the fire brigade took over. Liberty Chester, who has a four year old daughter Lacie, said she didn t feel safe.

I m just glad Lacie wasn t there, she said.

If she had been she would not have gone back into the flat. The 24-year-old added: It was the security guards from the shopping centre who saw the smoke and ran over to tell us.

They tried to find the fire alarm but couldn t.

Then they began banging on all the doors to tell us.

We were waiting outside for maybe half an hour to 45 minutes.

We weren t told anything . Nobody knew what was going on.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service4 spokeswoman said one ambulance was at the scene.

One man was treated for minor burns and smoke inhalation.

Residents were allowed to return to their homes after the blaze was extinguished at about 3pm.

Michelle Thomas lives on the third floor and her daughter Chloe Moore lives on the top floor of the building. Michelle said: When I got there I saw a roofer who was working there . He tried to put it out himself and his arm was covered in bandages.

Chelsea Lee has lived in the block for 3 years . The 23-year-old said: Everyone looks out for each other here. Peter Stoate, a spokesman for SCH, said: We are pleased to report that the fire on the roof of Cheshunt House was quickly extinguished by the fire services .

One contractor working on the roof was treated at the scene but no tenants were injured.

Some tenants had to leave their homes for a couple of hours while safety procedures were followed but all were able to return soon afterwards.

Pippa Middleton’s wedding: all the security rumours from ‘phone police’ to secret passwords and wristbands

Pippa Middleton1 s wedding to James Matthews2 has been described as the society event of the year, attended by a mixture of royals, sports superstars, celebrities and even members of the public.

But surprisingly, in this day and age of smartphones and social media, not one photo from inside the church or lavish reception has emerged3 , thanks to a range of heavy security measures.

While some – private security men, royal protection officers and CCTV – seem fairly standard, other rumoured measures verge on the bizarre, such as claims of phone police patrolling guests and issuing warnings, and special passwords created months ago. Mirror Celebs rounds up the security rumours:

Phone police patrol guests

This claim, which surfaced in the Daily Mail4 , alleges that a team of so called phone police were on hand during the day to stop guests taking any pictures on their mobile phones.

Apparently guests were given one warning if they did take such photos, but a second breach could result in being asked to leave the ceremony. While it s all totally unconfirmed by either Pippa or James, the fact that ZERO social media snaps have so far emerged despite a guest list of several hundred means that either a) guests were happy to oblige or b) the phone police did a very good job!

Social media picture ban

As well as phone police allegedly on duty, it s reported that Pippa asked guests not to post any pictures to social media5 . If true, she certainly wouldn t be the first high profile bride to do so .

Other famed weddings rumoured to have instilled a social media ban include Kim Kardashian and Kanye West s nuptials in 2014.

A source said before the nuptials: Pippa has complete control over the wedding 6 , right down to the finest details.

Guests have been told they will be banned from taking in cameras, although it is understood that they will be allowed to keep their phones . However, there s a strict no photos policy in place.

Pippa and James want it to be a very private event and do not want anything to distract from the fact they want it to remain a classy affair.

However, one guest who seemed to defy such a ban was Pippa’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, who merrily shared selfies of himself and daughter Tallulah7 ahead of the church service and in their car en route . He wasn’t in attendance at the reception, though, so didn’t post any photos from there.

Wristbands

One local, Elizabeth Mary Reeves, told BBC News8 that some lucky villagers were given silver wristbands with the date of the wedding enscribed on them, which allowed them access to the grounds of St . Mark’s Church and the chance to get closer to the wedding party.

Special passwords

According to E ! News9 , wedding guests were assigned a special password three months ago that was unique to them . When they arrived for the reception, guests had to show photo ID and have their special password checked off a list. They had to send their passport photo beforehand for recognitiion.

Scotland Yard royal protection officers

With several senior royals in attendance including Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Beatrice, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, perhaps it’s no surprise that security was super tight around the church and reception.

It’s reported Scotland Yard royalty protection officers were on hand during the day, while Daily Mail10 says armed police patrolled in a BMW 4×4.

No-fly zone over venue

Again, with so many senior royals present, it’s reported a no-fly zone was imposed over Bucklebury and Englefield from Friday at 6am until Sunday at 3pm. ITV News11 reports that ban includes flying drones, aircraft, balloons, kites and parachutes.

Four ex SAS soldiers patrolling the grounds

It was reported that four former SAS soldiers now working in private security had been drafted in to help with security on the day.

A source told The Sun12 ahead of the nuptials: There s a lot of security . It s as tight as you can get . They ve had dogs out all night . Four SAS men have been plotted up and swept the place for the last few days . They are like ghosts . You d never see them.”

Extra CCTV installed

According to Daily Mail13 , extra CCTV was installed around the church.

A security guard said: “We are leaving nothing to chance.”

What everyone wore to Pippa’s wedding

After the church service at St . Mark’s, guests retreated to nearby Englefield House for champagne and toasts, before travelling to the Middleton family home, where a 100,000 marquee had been erected in the gardens.

As well as the usual speeches, drinks, gourmet meal and canapes, guests at the reception were also treated to a flyover by a World War II Spitfire15 .

The vintage aircraft buzzed over the skies above the 100,000 glass marquee in the Middleton family garden during the evening reception after the Middletons reportedly warned neighbours to expect a bit of noise and apologised for any inconvenience.
