Ipswich: Four arrests after town defeat

FOUR fans have been arrested following the East Anglian derby this afternoon.

Ipswich Town fans were held back in the stadium at Carrow Road after the match to avoid a clash outside the gates. However, it is reported that some seats had been ripped out in the away stands and the toilets were damaged, causing them to flood.

A Blues’ supporter contacted this newspaper to say coins were thrown onto the pitch by a minority of people during the game.

Chief Superintendent Sarah Hamlin, of Norfolk Police, said: “I would like to thank the visiting supporters for being patient whilst the home fans left the stadium.

“The safety of the public is our top priority and I am delighted that the vast majority of fans acted responsibly and respectfully, making it an enjoyable and memorable day for those who attended.”
