Response from Aston Villa

For many years the away fans in wheelchairs have suffered abuse and had their safety compromised while being located in with Aston Villa home fans.

At last the away wheelchair supporters have been moved to a new platform located now with their own visiting supporters with a barrier enhancing their safety from crowd surge.

Thanks in particular goes to Joanne Mckibbens, Chairwomen Aston Villa Disabled Supporters Association, for sterling work and unrelenting pressure over many years to achieve this result.
