Three more arrested after Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday clash

Burnley and Pendle Citizen: Three more arrested after Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday clash Three more arrested after Burnley and Sheffield Wednesday clash

THREE more arrests have been made as police probe a clash between Clarets and Sheffield Wednesday fans last month.

Eight men from across Burnley, Pendle and Rochdale were detained after violence broke out between rival supporters at Burnley Miners on March 18.

And police have confirmed that an extra three suspects — a 21-year-old man from Colne, a 41-year-old man from Bacup and a 26-year-old man from Burnley — have also been spoken to over the past 24 hours.

One window was smashed and damage was caused to furniture at the Plumbe Street venue after fans in different rooms were involved in a 40-strong fight.

Investigations are also understood to be continuing in East Lancashire and South Yorkshire as officers look to establish whether anyone was hurt.

A spokesman for Lancashire Police also said that the original eight have been released on bail, pending further enquiries, until March 18.

Stone Island: says...

It's because of scum like this, that has led to the police introducing such draconian measures for the Rovers V Burnley games. These so called Burnley fans just can't be trusted. I'm led to believe that the Sheffield fans were 'shirters', and not hooligans, who were just enjoying a post match drink, when they were attacked for no reason. There's a word for them; bullies.
I hope these so called fans get locked up with the rest of the Silly Squad.
