Witnesses and video footage of a fight that broke out during a football match is being sought by police.

Officers were called to reports of disorder at the Burnley v Arsenal match on Saturday (September 18) between both sets of supporters.

The incident took place during the game at Turf Moor and an investigation has been launched by the police and Burnley Football Club to identify those responsible.

A number of suspects have already been identified and will be spoken to in due course.

PC Dan Fish said: “The disorder witnessed during the match was shocking and not in any way reflective of true football fans.

"This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated by Lancashire Police or Burnley Football Club.

“We are working closely with our colleagues at Burnley Football Club to identify the individuals responsible. That work is very much progressing.

“We are aware of footage of the disorder being widely shared on social media. We would ask that anybody who has footage which could support our investigation to send it to police.”

Anyone with information or footage is asked to email 545@lancashire.police.uk or call 101, quoting log 0715 of September 18, 2021.
