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.

One police officer held a Middlesbrough fan back away from the Ultras who were trying to attack the Middlesbrough fans heading home after the match.

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

Cleveland Police and the Met Police in small numbers managed to keep the two sets of fans separated as they both continued to hurl abuse at each other and attempted to get back to each other.

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.

So were sure Cleveland Police will be knocking on a few people’s doors over the coming weeks.

Cleveland Police and the Met Police did a great job under challenging circumstances.

Woman arrested for driving stolen mobility scooter in reckless manner

Published

on

Police in Hartlepool came across an unusual incident while on a routine patrol of the town centre.

The Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police team managed to stop a stolen mobility scooter, now we aren’t too sure if a pursuit was given but if there was we are sure the footage would be unreal.

And we are fairly sure those cops responding to the incident won’t hear the end of this one back in the parade room for the next couple of years.

Anyways getting back to the story because this is, after all, a very serious incident, officers have described it as ‘one of the strangest jobs they’ve dealt with’.

Not only had the woman stole the mobility scooter she could not even drive it. Police Say she was spotted driving the Scooter in a reckless manner while under the influence of alcohol.

Cops managed to get their hands on her and lock her up but now they have the job of finding out whos scooter it is.

The cops admitted this was Perhaps one of the strangest jobs officers have dealt with in recent times.
