Nine arrested following football match at The Hawthorns


Police arrested a total of nine people during last nights’ West Bromwich V Chelsea match at The Hawthorns.

Seven men were arrested for pitch incursion, all have been charged and bailed.

Two other men were arrested, a 35-year-old man from Solihull for public order and a 32-year-old man from Suffolk for criminal damage and assault- both have been bailed while enquiries continue.

Chief Inspector Nick Rowe from the force’s operations unit said: “Overall it was a great evening match with an intense atmosphere, the majority of fans were really well behaved and enjoyed the game, with only relatively minor issues dealt with by officers."
