Report of incidents at Liverpool and Manchester City game in Anfield
Main article content
We can confirm we are working closely with Liverpool and Manchester City football clubs to understand a number of reported incidents which took place at the match at Anfield yesterday, Sunday 16 October.
We have been made aware that offensive and disorderly behaviour had taken place during the Liverpool V Manchester City game, including allegations of coin-throwing and offensive graffiti was sprayed in the away section.
We have also been made aware of an allegation that a Manchester City team coach was damaged. However no incidents have been reported to us or that items were thrown at the coaches, and we are now working with MCFC to establish the circumstances of what happened and the allegation that damage was caused.
Such behaviour will not be tolerated, and we are working with both clubs to identify and bring to justice anyone found responsible for committing offensive and disorderly behaviour.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via Twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ quoting reference 289 of 16 October. You can also call 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
