Storms Cause Wembley Cracks

According to reports, storms on Monday caused a 40ft long crack to appear through four floors at Wembley Stadium. "Panicked workers" described the floor shaking as the building creaked and groaned. Yet officials say Wembley remains fully operational, and that the structure is fine, the crack merely a symptom of the year-old stadium's natural settling. Is this a case of excitable hacks conjuring a shock story out of nothing? Or are Wembley bosses trying to whitewash yet more problems at the notoriously troubled national stadium?
