Police arrest 29 as part of Barrow FA Cup game disorder investigation

ALMOST 30 people have been arrested as part of a violence probe following an outbreak of hooliganism at a Barrow FA Cup match.

Enquiries are ongoing after violence errupted at half-time in Barrow AFC’s 4-0 win over Atherstone Town in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup on October 12.

Police yesterday confirmed 29 people ranging from 18 to mid-30s have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder in relation to offences carried out at the match.

Warwickshire police are still looking to speak to any potential witnesses or victims and officers have now made three trips to Cumbria in a bid to complete the investigation.

Police have confirmed further arrests are still to be made.

The 29 people arrested have been released on bail until mid-February while investigations continue.

Anyone with information about the attacks who has not yet contacted police, or who was a victim, is asked to contact Nuneaton CID on on 01926 415000 or 101.
