Three men arrested at Oxford United match bailed

Three men arrested at the Oxford United and Bristol Rovers football match on Saturday 9th February have been released on bail.

They were arrested on suspicion of committing public order offences. Two men - both aged 47 - have been released on bail until 8th March, while the third man who is 45-years-old, has been bailed until 9th March.

“There is an ongoing post-match investigation to determine the circumstances surrounding what happened. There was a substantial policing operation in place to ensure the game ran smoothly and it is a shame that a small minority of supporters seemed to be intent on causing trouble.”

– Area Commander, Supt Christian Bunt, Thames Valley Police
