Four arrests at Pools match

FOUR football fans were arrested after trouble flared during Hartlepool United’s clash with Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.

Police and stewards became involved in the incident, which took place in the Rink End where the visiting supporters were seated, shortly after Pools took the lead in Saturday’s game.

Two 17-year-olds, a 19-year-old and a 22-year-old were arrested on suspicion of affray and taken to Hartlepool Police Station for questioning.

They have since been bailed, pending further inquires.

All four were from the Doncaster area and no Hartlepool fans were involved in the incident.

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “Four males were arrested on suspicion of affray and have been interviewed and bailed until mid-November.”

Hartlepool United did not wish to comment on the matter.

The attendance at the game was 4,406, with 625 away fans.

The game ended 1-1, with the visiting team scoring a late equaliser.
