Rovers Tragedy at the Brittania

The intial details for the incident are sketchy, so we cant go into any presumtions, however it is said the individual was found at 4pm in the South Stand at the Britannia Stadium, after being hit in the head by a bin.

Reports are a 25 year old man is being questioned over the incident. The gentleman was rushed to the nearby hospital after being treated for cardiac arrest and the knock to the head. However, the 30 year old gentleman passed away in hospital.

Our Sincere condolences to the family of the yet to be named gentleman. A tragedy, and hopefully, nothing sinister did occur.

Such a shame and as others have said our thoughts must go to the family who wouldn't have thought for one moment that their loved one wouldn't return from the Britannia Stadium. RIP.

A death at a football ground or not, is never a good thing. Condolences to his family, as nobody should expect not to return from a match.
