New footage has emerged revealing the dramatic scenes at King’s Lynn Town’s football ground on Monday, which led to two arrests.

Norfolk Constabulary confirmed two men were arrested on suspicion of public order offences following the play-off final with Slough, which The Linnets lost 2-1.

The footage, captured by a supporter at the match, shows crowds of people inside and outside the football ground fighting, swearing and being arrested.

Police dealt with the incident at around 5.30pm on bank holiday Monday.

A police spokesman said: “Two men were arrested at King’s Lynn Football Club at approximately 5.35pm yesterday (Monday, May 7) on suspicion of public order offences.

“One man in his 40s and another in his 60s, and both from the King’s Lynn area, remain in police custody. Police enquiries continue.”
