Athletics club chief 'furious' at Don Valley closure

The City of Sheffield Athletics Club chairman said he is "furious" at the council's decision to close the Don Valley Stadium.

Mike Corden said:

The writing was on the wall when they didn't instantly rename it after Jess following the Olympics.

We asked that question straight away and the politicians averted their eyes and waited for it to go away.

It's an appalling mess and if the politicians were bankers people would be baying for blood.
