Brent college campaign against Wembley Stadium staff pay

As ‘Football might be coming home’ on Sunday at Wembley – the staff at the stadium don’t earn enough to take home – that’s according to a local college.

Children from the nearby Ark Academy in Brent, have been campaigning outside the ground for workers there to receive the London Living Wage – the amount needed to afford the basics in the capital.

Henry has been speaking to some of the children from the academy and one of the organisers.

We contacted Wembley Stadium for a response – but we are yet to hear from them.
