Superintendent Richard Morgan, of Lancashire Police, said police officers "responded quickly" to the pitch invasion at the end of the Preston-Blackpool match on Monday night. A steward was struck by a police horse during the disorder.
We are aware that a steward was injured inside the ground and I would like to reassure people that will be looking into the circumstances around how and why that happened.
We have been working closely with the football club in the lead up to and throughout the match. I would like to stress that it is only a minority who have been involved in the disorder with the majority of supporters enjoying the event and getting home safely.
