Fresh appeal after derby fans clash in Upper Bangor

A police officer injured when rival football fans clashed in Upper Bangor has been released from hospital.

Detectives have renewed their witnesses after fans broke through a police cordon on Saturday night, ahead of the Welsh Cup derby at Nantporth between Bangor City and Caernarfon Town.

Another officer was also injured in a separate incident in the city on the same night. A spokesperson for Bangor police station said ten people were held in custody, though not all of the arrests were linked to the match, which Caernarfon won 2-1.

Detective Inspector Andrew Gibson said officers were ”keen to obtain any mobile phone footage or dash cam footage that may have captured the incident.”

The North Wales Police Federation said it was ”absolutely livid” about the assaults. They warned such behaviour against their colleagues ”cannot be allowed to continue”.

Anyone with information about the disturbance should contact Bangor police station on 101, quoting reference no. 19100027984, or the North Wales Police control room via the live web chat.

The draw for the Welsh Cup quarter finals will be made tonight on S4C’s Heno at 7pm.
