Ipswich Town have condemned the "idiotic behaviour" of some fans after flares were let off during Sunday's East Anglian derby.

Several people had to be treated for breathing in smoke following the incidents at Portman Road.

Two people have since been arrested and Ipswich say they're working closely with police to identify those responsible.

Despite the trouble, police said the majority of the 23,000 crowd were "responsible and respectful."

We obviously condemn the idiotic behaviour of those who set off flares inside the stadium and are working closely with the police to identify the culprits.

We understand two arrests have already been made over the matter.

Seven arrests were made at yesterday's East Anglian derby between Ipswich Town and Norwich City at Portman Road - including two for taking flares into the ground.

A number of people had to be treated by medics after the flares were let off, but they are now thought to be OK.

Despite the trouble, police said the majority of the 23,000 crowd were "responsible and respectful."

Arrests made at the East Anglian derby

  • A 23-year-old man from Norwich was arrested on suspicion of possession of class A drugs.
  • A 23-year-old man from Colchester and a 57-year-old man from Witham were arrested for breaching a section 35 dispersal notice to leave a designated area following anti-social behaviour.
  • A 29-year-old man from Felixstowe was arrested on suspicion of affray and a 23-year-old man from Norwich on suspicion of assault.
  • A 34-year-old man from Ipswich was arrested for discharging a flare in the stands in the ground and a 45-year-old man from Norwich was arrested for possession of a lit flare inside the ground.

A very small minority appeared to be set on causing trouble and officers made several arrests during the course of the policing operation.

We said before the game that we would not tolerate anti-social behaviour, violence, racial chanting, mindless vandalism or any alcohol-fuelled disorder and the vast majority of the 23,000 who attended were responsible and respectful.
