Parts of Worcester Avenue and Northumberland Park Road will remain cordoned off for the police investigation throughout the game.

Chief Inspector Stephen Johnston-Keay assured that the police are conducting a thorough investigation and are committed to identifying and arresting those responsible for this tragedy.
