Police seek football fans after service station assault


Thames Valley Police has released a CCTV image of people officers would like to speak to in connection with an incident involving Sheffield United and Hull City football fans at the Newport Pagnell Services on the M1 motorway.

After Hull's FA Cup Semi-Final victory against the Blades, two men were seen stealing alcohol at the Welcome Break between junctions 14 and 15.

A plain clothes store detective asked the men to stop.

He was then assaulted and knocked unconscious before being kicked and punched several times.

Investigating officer, PC Jonathan Moss, said: “This was a violent attack on the victim, who is, now, thankfully recovering.

“At the time of the incident the service station was extremely busy with fans of both Hull City and Sheffield United, and I believe that several members of the public would have witnessed this incident."
