Only one disabled fan moved, say West Ham

West Ham United say that just ONE supporter has been moved to make room for additional security measures.

Earlier this week a member of the KUMB Forum, who is also a disabled season ticket holder at West Ham, was informed that he was being re-seated with immediate effect in order to make way for the installation of new security gates by the Directors' Box at the Olympic Stadium.

However a club source told KUMB the supporter in question is the ONLY season ticket holder to have been moved as a result of the stadium upgrades, which are understood to have been suggested by a Safety Advisory Group panel that met in response to the disturbances witnessed during the recent match against Burnley.

The source stated that it had been necessary to move the fan in question as "the gates has been installed too closely" to his seat - adding that the supporter has since accepted a seat in the Corporate area as an alternative.

In additional to the new gates that have been installed around the Directors' Box ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting with Southampton, several segregation gates have been added around the stadium to prevent the free movement of fans around the arena.
