INSports Ordered Closed

Minister of Sports, Olivia “Babsy” Grange, has instructed the Chairman of Independence Park Limited, Mike Fennell, to take a number of actions following the fire at INSPORTS on Tuesday.

Minister Grange says the incident on Tuesday is only the most recent in a series of fires which have occurred in the building over the past five years.

She says a reputable firm is to be contracted to carry out a thorough inspection and assessment of the electrical installation and works on the building.

Following the assessment, she says a comprehensive report should be submitted with appropriate recommendations for further action.

Minister Grange says the section of the building occupied by INSPORTS and a few Sporting Associations is to be closed to all personnel – with the exception of the Police, as of next Monday.
