Leisure: I'll answer for you about the CFS Concourse.
I am not sure what has caused this, but I suspect it is since it was split into 1/3 and 2/3rds.
I used to go in there in the old First Division (with similar size crowds) and whilst I was a lot younger the crowding didn't seem
anywhere near as bad as it is now.
By Serious incident I suspect the poster was talking about crushing injuries.
I too worry about this at times.
Possible Cheap Solutions. Cost £75,000. About the cost of 1 crushing injury claim.
1/. Close the bar at the bottom of the staircase. Convert this to toilets. Sometimes it's even hard to get down the stairs.
Currently we have 1-way into the toilets and the same way out for 1,500 people.
2/. Remove the shelving and bins opposite the current bars and toilets this encourages congregating in these areas.
3/. The area to the left of the staircase, (toward the partition in the concourse) needs to be converted into a long thin bar. (non smoking)
Move the TV's into this area, again this causes congregation outside the toilets. The only b***dy TV is over the entrance to the current toilets!
Put plenty of drinks shelving in this area.
4/. The 2 portacabin bars in the open area of the concourse need to be built in a more permanent fashion with a roof over, but still allowing smoking in an open area, PLEASE!
5/. Install a drain at the steel shutter door exit, that allows rain water to flow away. I can no longer perform a 2m long jump at my age.
