Appeal following Collision on M6, Man banned from Stoke City Home Fixtures

Written by on 14 February 2024

Staffordshire Police are appealing for information following a collision on the M6, southbound between junctions 15 and 16 on Monday morning.  It happened at around 11.40 and involved a silver Ford Transit van, a red Vauxhall Corsa and a grey Ford Puma.

The driver and passengers of the Vauxhall Corsa were taken to hospital by paramedics. The driver, a man in his 40s, remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital, and a woman and a child suffered minor injuries.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who saw what happened or those with dashcam footage of the area at the time. You can call 101, quoting incident 257 of 12 February, or message them using Live Chat on the Staffordshire Police Website.

A man has been banned from attending all regulated football matches for the next three years after threatening a steward at a Stoke City home fixture.

The 38 year old is banned from attending Stoke City and International fixtures for the next three years after he pleaded guilty to being verbally aggressive towards a club steward during the team’s clash with Watford on 19 August last year.

He has been conditionally discharged and has been ordered to pay court costs of £135 and a surcharge of £26.  The order prevents him from attending all regulated football fixtures with a geographical exclusion zone around Stoke City FC also in place. This stops him from associating with other football supporters on match days.  PC Benjamin Greensides, dedicated football officer for Stoke City, said: “This outcome is the result of positive work being done by Stoke City Football Club, Staffordshire Police and the courts to combat unacceptable behaviour. We will continue to take positive action against those who use football stadiums as a venue to commit crimes.”
