Romford Greyhound Stadium, which has been closed this week due to safety concerns around emergency lighting, will reopen on Monday, it can be revealed.

The Coral Stadium in London Road, Romford, was forced to close last Monday, Tuesday and Thursday but partially reopened on Friday and Saturday, before management announced you throughout this week.

However, the Coral Essex Vase, a popular competition run at the venue over 575m which was due to take place tonight (Fri), has been postponed.

This afternoon, the Dogs’ official Twitter account has revealed the track will reopen for usual business from Monday, November 27.

Earlier this week, Coral spokesman Simon Clare apologised to staff and customers for the sudden closure.

He said: “We can only apologise again on behalf of Coral Romford Stadium to all the trainers, owners, kennelhands, bookmakers and customers that have been affected by this situation.”
