    Big bank roof

    About 15 minutes into the match there was a loud bang and a gust of wind seem to move the roof covering at the front of the roof.
    The more worrying aspect was the red iron girders started bouncing it only lasted less than 10 seconds it seems
    It was where the new floodlights were situated.

    Some worried faces around me.

    So you did the sensible thing of reporting it to a steward or some other official while you were at SJP?

    Hoping that you or someone else who noticed might do more than just hope.

    AND did anyone else notice the new floodlit pylon was moving from side to side in the gale?

    I believe Angus is the CEO of a large engineering company, perhaps he will be able to offer some expertise on the subject.

    Didn't notice anything tbh but then I stand at the other end of the BB , didn't take much notice of the new pylon either as I was watching us torn a strip.
