Bosses apologise at 'no travellers' sign at Blackburn Ice Arena

BOSSES at Blackburn’s Ice Arena have apologised and launched an investigation after a ‘no travellers’ sign was placed in the reception.

A duty manager at the rink put the sign up following a series of incidents.

It stayed on view in the main reception for five days before it was taken down after staff were contacted by the Lancashire Telegraph.

The sign has infuriated ethnic minority groups who said it breached race relations law.

But Arena bosses said it went up without their permission and have apologised for any offence caused.

Hughie Smith, life president of The Gypsy Council, said the sign was ‘inflammatory, illegal and in danger of inciting racial hatred’.

He said: “This manager has definitely got it wrong. It is very rare to see this because people have learned it is discrimination.

"It is sad in this day and age.”

A spokesman for the Equality and Human Rights Commission said refusing to serve someone because of their race, including their colour, nationality or ethnicity, was an offence under the Equality Act 2010.

He said: “Consumers have the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination by shops or services.

"Refusing to serve someone because of their race would usually be unlawful, but only a court can decide if the law has been broken.”

One skater said: "I am disgusted. It is like saying no whites or blacks. It is discrimination.

"Anybody can cause trouble, not just people from the travelling community. I won't be going there again."

The notice was put up after police were called to the venue in Lower Audley last Thursday night by staff after a group of youths refused to leave.

Four youths who were inside the ice rink opened the fire exit doors to let their friends in without paying.

Staff were alerted by the alarm going off and the youths were asked to leave.

But the group demanded a refund, which was denied, and a row broke out in the reception area.

Officers arrived and the nine youths left at around 8.44pm. No arrests were made during the incident.

A police spokesperson said: "We attended as there was a group being hard work. They left after police advice.”

Arena bosses said there had also been a number of incidents over Christmas and the New Year involving travellers.

In a statement from senior managers, they said: "Police were called on several occasions to quell public order offences by groups of youths.

"This led to a duty manager erecting signage at the entrance to the Arena to advise that members of the travelling community were not to be admitted due to these problems which had arisen.

"Senior Arena management were not aware such a sign had been erected and on discovering it immediately took steps to remove it and the management wishes to apologise for any offence caused.

"The Arena does not seek to discriminate against any persons as a category and the management does not condone any form of discrimination.

"The Arena management reiterate that it has no policy of discrimination for users of the Arena but it will seek to exclude known trouble-makers who violate the rules of using the Arena premises in the future."

Joe Dykes, head of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Achievement Service for Lancashire County Council, said if the sign had not been removed, legal action could have been taken.

He said: "There is case law behind this under the Race Relations Act. Many years ago, a pub put up a sign up saying no travellers which went to court.

"The groups protected under the law are Roma gypsies or travellers of Irish heritage.

"Travellers is such a global word but it would be unlawful to place a sign like that.

"People do put signs up in frustration after incidents happen but I would hope in this day and age some people would think carefully beforehand.

"It is unfortunate that it has happened. I hope the management taken appropriate action and it won't happen again."

A Blackburn Council spokesman said the issue was a police matter. Yesterday police said they had not received any formal complaints.

maybe this venue needs to look for NEW "Senior Arena management", do they just sit in the office all day, doing nothing?

after all how could this notice be on public view for 5 days and yet they knew nothing about it? it`s not a big building!

Maybe it should just say 'no troublemakers'. It would mean pretty much the same thing. Anyway, I didn't think that 'traveller' is a different race of people. If it said 'no Irish' or 'no Gypsies' then yes, it would be racist. Ultimately, the owners reserve the right to let in who they want.

The Management of ANY business should have the right to refuse to admit whoever they like, if it is considered that to let such people in is to the detriment of the operation of the business or the enjoyment of others. In my mind this should include groups of people as well as individuals whose well documented behaviour is known to result in problems. Anyone else seen signs at the entrance to Public Houses on matchdays that read "Home fans only"? But, thanks to the PC brigade, this is not to be. Does this mean that farmers in and around Appleby can't erect signs that say "No Travellers"? Anyone who has had first hand experience of how this section of the so called community operate, will have nothing but sympathy for the Manager concerned. It would even be risky to call a Management meeting to covertly operate a defined admissions policy, as it only takes one do-gooder in the ranks to sound the alarm. Why not make the Ice Arena a Members Only Club, then they could vet the applicants and refuse membership to whoever they felt was undesirable? Many comments that should be made, would like to be made, but can't be made because of the restrictions placed on the freedom of speech of the indigenous populous of England, will stifle comments on this particular topic. I would be surprised if this post survives the censor.

These people are not a race and therefore cannot be discriminated against on these grounds. They are a ground of people who have made a lifestyle choice. For such a small "community" they seem to cause controversy and upset people wherever they drop anchor. Theft and anti social behaviour is rife within their group, they illegally occupy land that does not belong to them and leave a disgraceful mess when they leave. Only earlier this week there was a story detailing how much it costs local councils to clean up after them.
Yes they do have a tarnished name in society but they do not do themselves any favours.

It's all well and good Mr Hughie Smith questioning the legality of this sign but he fails to appreciate that members of the "community" that he speaks for were responsible for unacceptable levels of anti social behaviour which undoubtedly would have caused upset and offence to the majority of decent people trying to use the facilities.

It is not a question of race it's a question of scumbag anti social behaviour regardless of which slice of the social pie you are from. On this occasion the pie is traveller flavour.

So what if it is aimed at children ? You are missing the point, Be it child or adult the fact is that they were engaging in unacceptable levels of anti social behaviour to the point where the Police had to be called.

What is the issue with erecting a sign that clearly points out that a specific group of people are not welcome because they have caused particular
problems?

When, oh when, will the powers that be, in this country and elsewhere, wake up to the fact that these so-called "travellers" are nothing but a lying, cheating, thieving bunch of scum who give sewer rats a bad name?

We are bombarded every week with tales of how they are operating scams, perpetrating criminal acts, living on, or just over, the edge of the law and generally making peope's lives miserable.

Raciaml, or ethnic, minority, my a***!

They're nothing more than a bunch of pseudo-Irish, sub-human garbage.

As for what happened at the rink, if you need any corroboration about their behaviour, ask the staff who work at Pizza Hut.

Get 'em out!

How is "no travelers" racist? Our country doesn't yet leglislate against those that choose to marginalise themselves - be it those who ride bikes, those who have long hair, those who choose to travel. Whether this discrimination should be leglislated against is a moot point.

Fact is, the management have the right to refuse admission - putting up the sign was perhaps rather on the dumb side - especially since some of the target audience probably couldn't read it anyway :)

travellers are neither a race nor ethnic minority. They are generally of Irish origin and the sign did not say 'No Irish'. Therefore 'refusing to serve someone because of their race, including their colour, nationality or ethnicity' has nothing to do with it.

nice to see the board swarming with people who have never been discriminated against and are happy to share their prejudices with the public whilst hiding behind screen names. A bunch of little thugs cause mayhem to such an extent that the police are called these little thugs are then barred from the premises and should have been given official cautions at the least. however to then extrapolate that every person who is a traveller is also a thug is ridiculous. I was once robbed by a person with ginger hair ergo everyone with ginger hair must be a robber..stupid isn't it? Being old enough to remember signs in windows saying no blacks or irish i think i prefer these days.

It seems quite obvious to me that this sign is meant to say 'no travellers cheques'. The cheques bit has either been cut off or is covered by the widow frame.

This looks likely as the typed signed, also shown in the picture, says something about no longer accepting personal cheques.

These people are'nt travellers, they can't be, they live in the same place all the time, cause havoc in the local pubs till the're barred, rip slates off thwaites empire theatre, leave their shyte all over the place which has been well documented throughout the country, are a law unto themselves. Ban them from everywhere, trouble follows them and comes with the territory. Well done ice arena for showing some sense, you've obviously had problems with them, shame the authorities hav'nt backed you up.

This is just a suggestion but why don't they buy houses, get jobs, pay taxes, abide by the law and become part of a fixed community in which they can integrate?
....and don't tell me they can't afford houses, some of the caravans they live in and cars they own probably would cost as much as a modest house.

Due to your inability to spell even the simplest words correctly and your childlike grammar,i have come to the obvious conclusion that you are in most probability a not very bright 7 year old child ,so obviously i won't reply in the same fashion to your drivel as i would do if you were an adult.To demonstate the point that the comments on this story are trying to get across,i would suggest that you ask your Mother(probably the lady who gets you to hide her "stash/jewellery when Police enter the camp) to tell you where your father (probably one of the many men your Mother takes you to visit in prison) got the laptop that you are using at the moment........LoL

Cant blame the ice arena at all. I was there the other week when a group of these 'travellers' where in attendance and their behaviour, language and abuse of the public and staff was disgusting. Some of the language you would'nt repeat to your worst enemy. Not to mention the threats of violence and general appalling behaviour that followed. The poor staff at the rink should not have to deal with that kind of thing. Putting a sign up probably wasnt the best idea, but can you really blame them? It's about time society in general stood up to these disgusting vermin and showed them that their animal like behaviour is not acceptable and wont be tolerated.
