Manchester United commission LEAKS inspector to work at Old Trafford after fans complain of water pouring through the roof at stadium – with club now engaging a team of ‘master planners’ to oversee eventual redevelopment of ground
Manchester United have commissioned a leaks inspector to work at Old Trafford – but they will have nothing to do with the drip of information coming out of the dressing room.
The club are aware of complaints from fans about water pouring through the roof at their stadium and have decided to act.
Now – every time it rains – a member of ground staff is tasked with walking around the famous venue and checking for any leaks.

Should they spot any questionable areas, repairs are carried out within 24 hours.
The process is also repeated come rain or shine on matchdays before turnstiles are opened to allow fans to enter.
United say the steps have been taken as part of a dedicated plan to improve the matchday experience at Old Trafford.
They have currently engaged a team of master planners to oversee an eventual redevelopment of the stadium, which has come in for criticism in recent times.
Meanwhile, a number of match-going supporters have been issued with fixed penalty notices by Trafford Council after being caught relieving themselves close to the ground.
The problem appears to have been exacerbated following the removal of temporary urinals on side streets by the local authority. United are to speak to the council to see if a solution can be found in what is a residential area.
