'Every seat monitored' to catch football troublemakers

A new camera system has been brought in at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground to catch troublemakers causing disorder, with the system said to be "constantly watching every seat".

Cameras inside Bramall Lane
Sheffield United

About £200,000 has been spent on the "state-of-the-art" cameras to send a strong message to people who go to the ground looking to cause trouble, the club says.

United says 55 court bans and 85 stadium bans were issued last season and the new system is designed to eradicate criminal disorder and anti-social behaviour.

We have clear examples of people being highlighted with regards to missile-throwing, flares and pitch encroachments, among other offences. If this happens at Bramall Lane, we will identify perpetrators and deal with them accordingly."

The Grade II listed Birley Spa Bath House, in Hackenthorpe, is the only remaining Victorian spa in South Yorkshire still set in its original grounds.

It's 176-years-old and over that time has been used for educational tours, a pleasure ground for children, wedding receptions, bathing spot and for community meetings.

However, after years of neglect Sheffield City Council have chosen to sell the heritage site next month.

It has a guide price in the region of £75,000 to £100,000.

The council has even warned it will "fall down" if action is not taken in the next few years.

It will be sold with a 250-year lease with conditions, including that the buyer repairs the building within two years.
