The new £25m Warner Stand at Lord’s cricket ground was put through its paces at the weekend as England hosted Ireland.

The redeveloped stand, which was built by Bam Construction, has 2,656 seats over two tiers. 

The stand, designed by architects Populous, also features a water system that collects and recycles rain water, as well as solar thermal and photovoltaic roof panels that generate hot water and electricity.

However, according to The Times, the stand was hit by teething problems during yesterday’s match between England and Ireland as a power cut meant the toilets and bars were temporarily out of use. 

The project is part of a £200m proposed masterplan for the cricket ground which also includes rebuilding three other stands, a new entrance and other new buildings.
