The club’s ground was one of the many places affected when Peterborough was hit with torrential rain on Friday (July 9) evening.

It is not yet known how badly damaged the stadium is but it is sufficiently so that the walk-in Pfizer clinic, set to run from 9am to 5pm, has had to be cancelled.

A statement from NHS Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group said: “We are sad to announce that we have had to cancel the COVID-19 walk-in clinic at Peterborough United on Saturday due to the localised flooding and subsequent damage to the stadium.”
