Rival football supporters returning from FA Cup final involved in altercation at Newport Pagnell services

Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following two public order incidents, which occurred at Newport Pagnell Services on the M1 and Oxford Services on the M40 on Saturday (3/6).

The first incident occurred at approximately 8.40pm at the Junction 8A services on the M40 when officers received reports of fighting between football supporters in the coach park.

A second incident occurred at approximately 9.10pm at Newport Pagnell Services, again in the coach park, when bottles and glass were thrown but it is not currently known if anybody was injured.

Investigating officer PC Alex Locke, Thames Valley Police’s Dedicated Football Officer, said: “These incidents appears to have been altercations between rival Manchester United and Manchester City supporters on the way back from Saturday’s FA Cup final.

“Nobody has been arrested from either incident and it is not currently known whether anybody was injured in the disorder.

“I am appealing to anybody who was at either services and who witnessed either of incidents to get in touch with Thames Valley Police.

“I’d be particularly keen to hear from anybody who may have mobile phone or dash-cam footage to contact us.

“You can do so by making a report online or by calling 101, quoting reference 43230244161 for the Oxford incident and 43230244211 for the Newport Pagnell incident.”
