Police praise fans after Berwick match

Northumbria Police have praised fans who attended Berwick's home match against Glasgow Rangers.

More than 4,000 spectators packed into Shielfield Park yesterday afternoon to see the 1-1 draw. Three people were arrested for minor offences, but police have praised the behaviour of most fans.

Superintendent Derek Scott said:

"I would like to praise the majority of fans who were mainly good natured and only interested in the action on the pitch.

"Public safety is always out number one priority, and given the rural location and number attending the ground, we had a policing plan in place.

"We have received reports that some sectarian chanting did occur and these reports will be fully investigated and reported to the relevant Scottish authorities."
