Arsenal Football Club has been made aware of a serious incident at the Green Lanes/Newington Green roundabout in Stoke Newington this morning.

A fire has broken out close to a store of propane cylinders, and we have been advised that as a consequence the area has been closed off with a 200 metre cordon in place.

The disruption will affect travel routes and the surrounding area for some time so supporters coming to the game today are advised to leave earlier than planned to avoid any delay.
