A GYM in Hereford closed temporarily after a car crashed into its building.

The City of Hereford Boxing Academy, in Harrow Road, suddenly closed yesterday (November 8).

It had to cancel all sessions at very late notice as the gym was unsure at the time whether it was safe to open, a spokesperson previously said.

But today a spokesperson said they were “very pleased and relieved” to open the gym doors again this evening.


Nobody was hurt in yesterday’s crash but did cause some damage to the unit after the car crashed into the front of the building.

“The damage has been assessed and we are reassured by the professionals that the building is safe to continue using until necessary repairs are made,” said the spokesperson.

The gym will be back open for normal timetable from 6.30pm.
