Manchester United have taken measures to prevent 'further deaths' at Old Trafford

Manchester United say they have taken steps to improve fan safety following the death of a supporter after a fall at Old Trafford two years ago.

Richard John Whale, 80, died from head injuries sustained after falling down a flight of steps while leaving the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand towards the end of a game against Manchester City in December 2017.

The cause of death was ruled as accidental at an inquest in November 2018 but the coroner noted that the positioning of two stewards had been a contributory factor.
