Liverpool Horse Show Cancelled due to Multi-Storey Fire
The organisers of the Liverpool International Horse Show have regrettably informed that this evening’s programme as well as the New Years celebrations, will not go ahead due to a fire in the multi-storey car park.
Sounds of large bangs have been echoing the area. The following statement has been released;
It is with considerable regret that organisers of the Liverpool International Horse Show announce that tonight’s performance at the Echo Arena has been cancelled.
Due to a serious fire in a multi-storey car park near to the Echo Arena, and on advice from the emergency services, the show’s final session will not proceed.
All people and horses are safe and secure, and show organisers have thanked spectators, riders and support teams for their understanding and co-operation during this ongoing situation.
The possibility of rescheduling the show for tomorrow (Monday) was discussed, but unfortunately, this has not proved possible.
Firefighters have been struggling to tackle the blaze for over two hours, the smoke surrounding the 02 arena is becoming considerably thicker.
Luckily horses were evacuated from the stable block adjacent to the car park where over 100 of cars were parked. There has been no reports of injuries so far.
