According to today's Daily Telegraph ( UK daily paper ) There is a 90% chance of the championships being postponed. This was a view expressed by an IBF 'insider'. The article mentions that IBF have stopped all planned expenditure on the event. The paper quotes Lindsey Bell, the spokesman for IBF as saying that the decision to postpone will be taken in the next 24 hours. The BAof E response from Steve Baddeley was that they had taken government advice and so far no one has suggested that BAofE should postpone.
