Chelsea fans block roads in Hammersmith and Fulham as Premier League title celebrations spill onto streets – Mirror.co.uk

Chelsea fans took their title celebrations onto the streets of London on Friday night.

Roads were blocked in the Hammersmith and Fulham area after the Blues claimed their fifth Premier League title.

Michy Batshuayi’s goal was enough to seal a 1-0 victory at West Brom and give Chelsea the three points they needed to see them over the line.

Following the full-time whistle, Chelsea fans continued their party outside – causing road blockages for the police to deal with.

Transport for London confirmed that the Harwood Road-Fulham Road junction was blocked due to “large crowds in the road”.

A CCTV image showed masses of fans being monitored by officers at approximately 20 past 10 at night.

Motorists were advised to use other routes around the area and expect delays.

More road closures are set to come in the area as Chelsea plan on open top bus parade to celebrate their title success.

That is expected to go ahead on Sunday May 28 – unless Arsenal win the FA Cup.

If the Gunners are victorious at Wembley, one of the two teams will move their trophy parade to the following day, as it is a bank holiday Monday.

Should it take place on the Sunday, open top buses are set to leave the west entrance of Stamford Bridge before heading east along Fulham Road.

The buses will then turn right onto Hortensia Road, right onto King’s Road and then into New King’s Road.

The convoy will stop at Eel Brook Common – estimated time of arrival 12.30pm – before the parade ends and the buses leave via Parsons Green.

Full details of road closures are yet to be released, but Chelsea say “some roads would be closed and access to other roads restricted” from 7am.

Some of the roads will be re-opened “as soon as it is safe and practicable”, including Fulham Road.
