Harrow Borough Council says Rugby League matches can be played at Barnet FCs stadium the Hive.

The London Broncos Rugby League club will share the Camrose Avenue stadium with Barnet starting from next year.

MP for Harrow East Bob Blackman raised concerns there would be increased disruption from the site for people living nearby as a result of the deal.

A spokeswoman for Harrow council said: “The use of the Hive is not confined to football and the contractual arrangements with Football First Limited allow for hiring of the facilities.

“We will monitor the situation to ensure that community access continues and will act if there is any evidence of a breach to planning or licensing conditions.”
