Poland checks vibrations in houses near stadium

Experts have been called in to examine residents' reports of windows rattling and pictures moving in houses near a Polish stadium rebuilt for the 2012 European Championship.

Poznan construction inspector Pawel Lukaszewski said on Friday that tests carried out during a Nov. 4 match between Lech Poznan and Manchester City showed the vibrations pose no threat to residents.

People who live on the upper floors of houses about 750 yards (meters) from the stadium had reported vibrations during matches in September and October.

The stadium's capacity was recently expanded from 20,000 to more than 40,000 in preparation for Euro 2012.

Lukaszewski said the tests were conducted when the stadium was full.
