Six arrested at Wolves v Blues derby

West Midlands Police have made six arrests at the end of the Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham City derby this afternoon.

Police have said there was a 'small disorder' as fans were leaving the stadium around the Stafford Street area. This was quickly contained, an investigation launched and arrests were made.

The actions of a few should not mar today’s local derby. The majority of the day passed peacefully and successfully.

However, action will always be taken against those few who don’t follow the law. Our officers were quick to respond and dispel those intent on confrontation.

An investigation is now underway. If there were people who saw something that could help our investigation or who have mobile phone footage of the disorder then they should contact the football unit on 101 at the earliest opportunity.

– Chief Inspector Nick Rowe

No further details of the arrests are available at this point.

Birmingham City 'concerned' with stewarding and policing

Birmingham City Football Club has said it is 'concerned' with stewarding and policing following alleged coin-throwing incidents at a match this weekend.

The Football Association has launched a fresh investigation into coin-throwing after alleged incidents on Saturday between Stoke and Villa, and Birmingham City and QPR.

An object was allegedly thrown at Stoke keeper Jack Butland during his side's 2-1 Barclays Premier League victory over Aston Villa, while QPR players celebrating Junior Hoilett's penalty during their 2-0 Sky Bet championship win over Birmingham were apparently targeted from the stand housing visiting supporters.

In a statement, Birmingham City FC said:

"We note allegations of coin throwing arising from the match at QPR on Saturday and we stress that the Club will take the strongest possible action in dealing with any individual found to have indulged in such a deplorable act.

"The Club also wishes to express its extreme disappointment that statements were released to the media during and after the match by QPR and Metropolitan Police without consultation with Birmingham City FC or West Midlands Police.

"A number of issues have since been brought to our attention from Saturday's match in regard the stewarding and policing that are of concern to the Club and our supporters.

"We read from the Metropolitan Police's statement that three men were arrested, one for pitch encroachment. The QPR supporter who walked round pitchside to confront Birmingham City supporters was, we understand, not arrested.

"We will be making official representation to QPR, Metropolitan Police and West Midlands Police about these issues in order to ascertain the full facts of Saturday's events and gather evidence.

"As a Club we abhor violence and anti-social behaviour at football matches and we will cooperate fully with the relevant authorities to ensure that the necessary and just punishments will be meted out to those responsible."
