Three men – from Bretton, Bottisham and Wisbech – have been arrested disorder at a football match between Peterborough and Cambridge United.

And a 17-year-old boy from South Cambridgeshire was arrested in Cambridge on Monday in connection with up to £20,000 worth of criminal damage at the Weston Homes Stadium, Peterborough.

Two of the men were arrested outside the stadium in London Road before the match, which began at 3pm on Saturday afternoon (29 October).

A 36-year-old man from Bretton, Peterborough, was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence, namely shouting at rival fans, and encouraging a fight, as well as assaulting an emergency worker, but was later released without charge.

A 20-year-old man from Bottisham, Cambridge, was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence, namely being in possession of a flare and setting of a flare into a crowd.

He has been released on bail to return to Thorpe Wood Police Station in Peterborough on 29 January next year.

Trevor Johnson, 45, of Parson Drove, Wisbech, was arrested outside Asda in Rivergate after the game and has since been charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place.

He has been bailed to appear at Peterborough Magistrates’ Court on 30 November.

The 17-year-old facing criminal damage allegations has since been released from police custody on bail, to return Parkside Police Station in Cambridge on 1 February next year.

Assistant Chief Constable Vicki Evans said: “We would like to thank the majority of Cambridge United and Peterborough United supporters who behaved responsibly at the match on Saturday.

“Extra patrols were in place as we supported Peterborough United with their event as well as those businesses and communities who were impacted by it.

“Unfortunately, there were a small number of fans who chose to behave in a wholly unacceptable way, and this behaviour has been condemned by both clubs – it will not be tolerated.”

A police spokesperson said: “The force, with the support of both clubs, has launched a post-match investigation and will take action against anyone identified as committing criminal offences, and will work with clubs to secure banning orders where appropriate.”
