MCD bats off rioters

All the team at MCD Developments wanted last Tuesday was to drink champagne, enjoy the Lord’s Taverners pre-test dinner, and celebrate the launch of their £32m West Stand at Edgbaston for Warwickshire County Cricket Club

But before they prepared to tuck into an Indian supper, the developer had to tackle to rioters armed with baseball, rather than cricket bats. Advisers had recommended MCD’s plush offices in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter be protected against rioters, who swept through Brum’s streets on 9 August.

Steel doors and security guards were put in place and, luckily for MCD, it was the Indian cricket team that was smashed to pieces, not its Birmingham portfolio.
