Due to concerns over safety, part of one end of the football ground was closed to spectators during Scarborough Athletic's 0-0 draw with Bamber Bridge.

Everyone Active were alerted to the problem, and contractors Wilmott Dixon were called to assess any damage, before looking to carry out repairs.

In the meantime, sandbags have been placed on the roof to weight the lining down and stop it blowing in the wind.
