A Derby County supporter has described how she had to dive for cover when the windows of the coach she was travelling on were smashed in an attack by Aston Villa fans on Monday.

The vehicle was carrying Derby County fans including families and young children and was targeted as it arrived at the stadium on Monday afternoon (27th May).

No one was injured but a number of objects were thrown at the coach and its windows were smashed.

Hannah Keen was on her way to the play-off final match at Wembley with other Rams fans, and says the attack has left her traumatised.

An Aston Villa fan has set up a crowdfunding campaign, saying he wants to turn a negative into a positive.

After David Jordan watched how his own team's supporters behaved he decided to try and raise £12,800 to "give something back to the Derby fans on board the coach."
