This morning has been like putting a jigsaw puzzle together with some important pieces missing.
Here is one of the pieces that Glasgow City Council sent me yesterday.
I think that this redacted email throws up more questions.
Why was there an “emergency meeting of the Safety Advisor Group” held on December 21st (two days before this email was sent)?
Following that meeting “urgent information and clarification” on several matters were sought.
Also the phrase “it is not now their intention to install safety netting at this time” indicates to me that:
- It had been considered prior to the 23rd December 2016
- They had not ruled it out at some point in the future.
That sentence is, at best, ambiguous, in my opinion.
I’m still trying to put this jigsaw together.
Moreover, I think it is instructive that I would not have the information I do have had I not appealed the original decision to not release these documents.
For the avoidance of doubt dear reader, I stand by my original story that members of the Safety Advisory Group (SAG) were informed by a representative of Sevco that they intended to erect safety netting at Ibrox.
