Following tonight’s highly anticipated Steel City Derby at Hillsborough Stadium, the match commander has thanked fans for their co-operation and support throughout the police operation.
Chief Superintendent Morley said: “Tonight saw the city come together to cheer on their teams and overall the behaviour from fans was positive and there was an exciting atmosphere for everybody to enjoy.
“During the course of the operation there was some minor disorder that resulted in the arrest of six individuals. This reduced level of conflict is testament to the attitudes and behaviour of both sets of supporters and the positive work by everybody involved.
“Thank you to our officers and our colleagues from other forces for their efforts, professionalism and effectiveness in keeping the public safe, under difficult circumstances.
“We hope your journey home was safe and that everybody enjoyed the match.”
