Tottenham v Nottingham Forest update: Spurs say Premier League game will go ahead after fatal incident


Tottenham have said their Premier League match at home to Nottingham Forest on Sunday will go ahead after a fatal incident close to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In an updated announcement, Spurs said the north end of the nearby Worcester Avenue and the whole of Northumberland Park Road and Vicarage Road would remain closed.

“Following an incident in which an individual has lost their life, we are doing everything to accommodate the ongoing Police investigation, which is of the utmost importance,” the club said.

“This afternoon’s Premier League fixture against Nottingham Forest will go ahead as scheduled.

“We shall update supporters as and when we can and ask for fans to be patient and allow extra travel time.

“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and all those affected.”

The game is the final top-flight fixture of the weekend as one of three matches taking place on Sunday.

Forest’s visit kicks off at the unusual time of 6pm GMT as an unrelated safety measure because of transport issues.

The hosts will begin the game fourth in the table, while Forest are 17th.
