The Romford greyhound stadium will once again be opened tonight, after failing a fire safety exercise which forced them to close this week.

The stadium in London Road, Romford, has confirmed on Twitter that races will go ahead as planned this evening, following its closure on Monday night and trials and meetings scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday were cancelled.

However, during race meetings on Friday night, Saturday morning and Saturday night, the stadium will have limited facilities on the main stand side of the stadium.

The Millennium Stand will not be in use.

In the tweet, it says: “We would like to reassure all of our regular customers and the local community around the stadium that in closing the stadium and its limited reopening, we have been taking a precautionary approach to issues identified in our internal safety checks and this is the same approach we are taking with our partial reopening.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to be able to return to normality as soon as possible.”
