West Yorkshire Police has pledged to identify and take firm action against those involved in disorder at a recent football match.

Kirklees District CID has appealed for witnesses and mobile phone footage of possible offences at the recent Huddersfield v Luton match on Monday, May 16.

The disorder incident took place at the end of the EFL Championship semi final game between Huddersfield Town AFC and Luton Town FC at the John Smith's Stadium in Huddersfield.

Detectives are now gathering evidence and speaking to anyone present at the game, as well as liaising with both clubs and football authorities.

Huddersfield v Luton match disorder

A large number of Huddersfield fans made their way onto the pitch but it turned sour when a small group of people began to throw missiles.

Officers were deployed onto the pitch to quell pockets of disorder as fast as possible.

The incident - which involved only a small minority of those attending the game - was in complete contrast to the rest of the fixture which had been peaceful and good natured.

DCI Marie Bulmer, who works for Kirklees CID, said: “We are continuing to investigate the disorder at the end of this fixture and I can promise those involved will be fully prosecuted for criminal offending they are identified as committing.

“We absolutely will not tolerate behaviour of this kind at sporting fixtures in West Yorkshire and I am appealing to supporters of both clubs who can assist our enquiries to contact us.

She added: “It must be stressed that this offending involved a small fraction of those present at what was otherwise a very good-natured evening, attended in the right spirit by the overwhelming majority of fans.

“It is important for their sake we identify and take action to make it very clear to that small minority that there is a real price to pay for this sort of behaviour.”

Anyone who has information or phone footage which can assist police enquiries is asked to contact West Yorkshire Police and reference police log 358 of May 12.
