NottinghamshireLive brings you the latest Nottingham Forest news as the National Police Chiefs’ Council give statement ahead of possible Premier League return
The National Police Chiefs' Council has confirmed that they are working closely with other organisations to ensure events are held "safely and with the appropriate security" as the next round of Premier League fixtures remain in doubt ahead of the Queen's funeral on Monday, September 19.
Nottingham Forest are due to host Fulham at the City Ground on Friday night after their trip to Leeds United – which had been scheduled for Monday night – was postponed following the Premier League's decision to postpone all action after the Queen's passing.
With the Queen's state funeral set to take place on the Monday following the next round of Premier League fixtures, the NPCC said in a statement that a national policing operation had been activated and that UK Policing was working with organisations to ensure sport goes ahead in the coming days.

The NPCC said: "Following the decisions of the Premier League and English Football League to cancel this weekend’s matches, we will work with football clubs to try and ensure that, where possible, football fixtures can take place safely when balanced against the requirement to support national events and deliver day to day policing.
"This is a unique situation and we are working closely with everyone involved."
Forest have started the season slowly after winning just one of their opening six league games. A disappointing home defeat to Bournemouth condemned Steve Cooper's side to a fourth defeat after the first few weeks of the new campaign.
