A number of males have been arrested in connection with disorder offences following the Midlands derby match between Stoke City and Birmingham City at the bet365 stadium last weekend.   The match took place on Saturday 5 November and saw Stoke City defeated 2-1 at home by Birmingham.

After the game, Staffordshire Police arrested a total of eight males on suspicion of multiple offences, with ages ranging from 15 to 37.

An 18-year-old man from Stoke, arrested on suspicion of racially-aggravated harassment, has since been granted conditional police bail while inquiries continue.

The other 7 have been released under investigation.

PC Benjamin Greensides, Dedicated Football Officer at Staffordshire Police, said: “I’d like to thank the vast majority of the attending fans, both home and away, whose behaviour was exemplary before, during and after, the match.  The minority of individuals who caused a small number of disturbances were dealt with quickly and appropriately.
