Eleven arrests made after pre-game violence

Eleven people were arrested after what police claimed was a pre-planned fight between Coventry and Leicester hooligans on Saturday morning.

The brawl broke out before Coventry's home match with the Foxes - which the Sky Blues won 2-0 - shortly after 11.30am.

Police believe the violence in Earlsdon, Coventry, had been planned.

Officers also reported they seized a number of weapons including knives, while one man received a minor head injury.

Detectives will be looking at CCTV footage to see if they can identify other hooligans and make further arrests.

Assistant Chief Constable Stuart Hyde of West Midlands Police said: 'This was a determined effort to cause violence and our response has been swift.

'It does emphasise the need for extra police resources on match days and in and around football grounds.

'It is very unusual for disorder to break out in the Earlsdon area, and all indications at the moment suggest that the violence was planned.

'While the majority of football fans are law abiding, police will deal robustly with the minority intent on causing violence and disorder.'
