The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics added an estimated half million visitors to the UK’s already bustling capital. This increased visitor footfall raised security concerns for transport links and Olympic venues. The security measures required had to be temporary and surface-mounted solutions that could be easily removed after the games.
A football match was scheduled to take place between Leeds United and Manchester United; this match has a deep seated rivalry, and has led to violent clashes in the past. The solution selected had to be flexible enough to be dismantled as and when required but robust enough to withstand a mob attack. An enclosure was created which would allow the coaches to pass through a police controlled entrance and allow the fans to disembark and make their way into the stadium, in safety.
