John Bishop slams ‘disgraceful’ treatment of fans at UEFA Champions League final after he gets caught in chaos
supports HTML5 videoJohn Bishop is one of those speaking out about the treatment of fans at the UEFA Champions League final in Paris, branding it ‘disgraceful’.The highly anticipated game was overshadowed when thousands of Liverpool fans were prevented from entering the stadium, causing dangerous bottlenecks and potential crushes.Unprovoked, police used pepper spray on women and young children to prevent the remote threat of supporters storming the fences in order to ensure they made it into the ground ahead of the scheduled start.Videos posted on social media showed fans climbing over fences to get into the ground and pepper spray being used, as well as police clashing with fans.Play had to be delayed by more than half an hour but some fans still didn’t make it into the ground. UEFA later blamed the delay on supporters who they alleged turned up without authentic tickets in a widely-criticised statement.Comedian Bishop, who was at the game, tweeted: ‘At the gate in Paris – been here for 25 minutes and nobody has been allowed in – disgraceful treatment of fans who are displaying an unbelievable level of patience.’At the gate in Paris – been here for 25 minutes and nobody has been allowed in – disgraceful treatment of fans who are displaying an unbelievable level of patienceWhat the hell is going on in Paris? Looks like very dangerous chaos outside the ground, kick-off delayed 30 minutes, 1000s of people not yet inside the stadium.
