VIDEO: Dreadful Security Checks at White Hart Lane This Weekend Left a Little to Be Desired

In the context of heightened terror threat in the last few weeks and football coming directly in the firing line when the Borussia Dortmund team bus was attacked six days ago, fans can have few complaints with greater security outside stadiums to ensure their protection.

Manchester City were recently criticised after increased security measures at the Etihad Stadium have left fans queuing outside on numerous occasions, but the price to pay for safety can never be too much.

And it is because of that video footage of a security guard conducting what can only be described as less than thorough searches on people outside White Hart Lane before Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth has gone viral.

In the video posted online by Twitter user Colin Rowland that has been retweeted by 8,800 others at the time of writing, a guard is seen barely even making contact with numerous fans as he conducts a very brief version of the usual pat down procedure.

That’s not to suggest there should be rigorous and invasive frisking of every supporter who enters every football stadium, but it would have incredibly easy for any one of those people to conceal a dangerous item and smuggle it into the stadium.

In a world where literally anyone could be a terrorist wishing to inflict damage and hurt on their fellow humans, it would be comforting to know that security and safety is being taken as seriously as possible.
