Lax OS security exposed - again


Filed: Tuesday, 14th November 2017

A new video featuring a group breaking into the Olympic Stadium has been published on YouTube.

A year ago last month we reported how fresh security concerns had been raised after a group calling themselves Night Scape' broke into the stadium before filming themselves on the roof of the stadium.

And it appears that little has been done to address the situation after another band of attention-seeking YouTubers were able to film themselves running amok underneath the stadium's temporary seating, before also making their way up on to the roof of the arena.

Filmed immediately after West Ham's defeat against Liverpool on 4 November, the small band made their way into the stadium as supporters were leaving, before donning plain 'hi viz' jackets - which were enough to fool security - and making their way into restricted areas.





As you can see from the video, the first area the group were able to access was underneath the temporary seating, a myriad of metalwork in which it would be easy to leave an explosive device similar to that which was left at the Parc des Princes stadium last October, when French Police foiled a terrorist attack.

The same group have also published videos of attempts to gain access to Stamford Bridge and Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, where their attempts were foiled by security and Police on both occasions.

Following last season's break-in, stadium operators LS185 claimed that they had foiled 13 copycat attempts to unlawfully access the stadium.
