Incidents like this have no place in football and those involved should be ashamed of their actions.

The football match was very peaceful with a great atmosphere with most people managing to avoid any violence.

But sadly it’s the few that spoil it for everyone. A number of people required medical treatment following the clashes. Fans from both teams were involved equally in the violence.

Officers placed themselves between to two sets of fans to stop the fighting and prevent any further fighting.

While officers held the Middlesbrough fans back Crystal Palace then attempted to force their way out of the police wall to get to the Middlesbrough fans as the limited number of officers police the football match. This forced police to close the road and hold all of the remaining Middlesbrough fans back and allowing Crystal Palace fans to be walked to the Train Station without further incidents from the Middlesbrough fans. Police managed to regain control of the situation and marched them down to the Train Station.

A number of police officers were assaulted while policing today’s match. No arrests were made however a number of people were cautioned on the streets and interviewed on video camera.

Officers did not have the support of Police Dogs, Police Horses or the Air support unit during the match.

Officers relying on a more cost-effective way to keep their eyes from the sky. Police Officers look out of the command centre window at the top the Stadium to have an overhead view of what is happening.

Jon Venables Reportedly Attacked With Boiling Water By Fellow Inmate

Published

on

Jon Venables attacked with boiling water by a fellow inmate. 

Jon Venables, one of the schoolboys who murdered James Bulger in 1993 has been attacked in prison after an image was released on social media.

Venables who is now aged 35 was attacked with boiling water and sugar after a fellow inmate managed to work out his identity.

Venables have been living under a fake name since 2001 and was sent back to jail having broken the conditions of his release and being found guilty of child pornography.

Venables was banned from travelling back to Liverpool but he had been attending music events and going to Everton Football matches.

He was later found to be in possession of cocaine and was also having a relationship with an underage girl.

Prison Officers were forced to place Venables on lockdown after his identity was revealed and he was attacked with boiling water and sugar.

it is alleged that Venables complained that guards did nothing at first to stop the attack from happening and offered him little help once he had been assaulted.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed to Police Hour that “incidents of this nature happen within prisons and we cannot discuss the nature of individual cases”

Now that the true identity of Venables is known within side the prison after images have been circulated among inmates it will be inevitable that another attack will happen.

Venables is currently serving a three-year sentence for child pornography offences and possession of 1,170 images of children which included babies.

It is believed inmates have been circulating images of Venables from prison to prison in the hope that one prisoner can identity him.

Facebook and Twitter this month removed images from their social media websites of various men who people claimed was Venables.

It is a criminal offence to name or identity Venables on social media due to an anonymity order granted in 2001 that prevents him from ever being named or identified.

Due to the nature of his repeat offending there is mounting pressure to scrap that order in order to prevent further children being targeted.

However due to the nature of Venables sick attack these orders are likely never to be removed.
