This week’s Nottingham WTA event will carry on despite a lockdown in the British city following a motorised rampage early Tuesday morning which killed three pedestrians and hostitalised three others.

Matches began on time at the 250 event where Maria Sakkari and French Open semi-finalist Beatriz Haddad Maia lead the grass court field.

A 31-year-old van driver was arrested after deliberately driving into a crowd waiting at a bus stop, killing three.

As a result, most of the city centre has been locked down for police investigations.
