Manchester police canvas opinion over half-and-half scarf ban for derby

Mark Ogden answers your questions from social media ahead of the Manchester derby at Old Trafford.

Ahead of the Manchester derby, the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have asked their followers what they think about them arresting on sight any fan spotted wearing a dreaded half-and-half scarf in or around Old Trafford on Sunday.

The GMP's hardline approach was sparked by a tweet sent to them a couple of days before the match between Manchester United and Manchester City, along with a photo of the offending item of neckwear.

"If you see anyone wearing one of these on Sunday please arrest them immediately," the tweet read.

"They are a threat to public safety. Thanks."

As there is no credible reason for half-and-half scarves to exist in the first place, this seems like a perfectly reasonable response to us.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
