Hundreds of workers building Leicester City's new training complex are being put at risk due to a lack of social distancing, it has been claimed.

A worker, who asked to remain anonymous, said safety measures had been put in place but were not being followed or enforced.

He said managers seemed more concerned with getting the project completed.

However, McLaren Construction said it was operating in line with construction industry guidelines.

Work on the 185-acre complex near the A46 in north Leicestershire started last year and is due to be completed this summer.

QPR in advanced talks over purchasing new site for training ground after scrapping Warren Farm plans

QPR have now scrapped plans to build a new training ground on the Warren Farm site first identified in 2012, the club and Ealing Council have confirmed.

Initial plans when the site was first selected were for the club to have a new training ground ready for use during the 2013-14 season, though planning permission issues and significant opposition from residents' groups have been a persistent problem.

Championship side QPR, who currently share training facilities with Imperial College in Harlington, have now confirmed that they have identified a new site on which to build a training ground and are in "advanced discussions" over the purchase.

Meanwhile, the west Londoners remain committed to supporting Ealing Council on developing a "first-class" community sports facility on the Warren Farm site.

The new training facility for QPR and its academy is scrapped, but they'll still look to build the community facilities. So new changing rooms, 3G pitch and upgrading existing pitches.

Got you!

I remember playing rugby with school at Warren Farm the thick end of 40 years ago. The pitches were like billiard tables.
