Police officer suffers ‘significant slash wound’ during Manchester United protests

Violence at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon left two police officers injured, with one suffering a significant slash wound to the face.

He is believed to have been hit by a bottle that was thrown from the crowd as flares were let off and barriers were used as missiles outside Manchester United’s home ground and the Lowry Hotel where the team were staying.

More than 1,000 protesters were outside the stadium while another 200 took part in demonstrations at the hotel.

Despite police being aware of the protests against Man Utd’s American owners, the Glazer family, around 100 got onto the pitch causing a game against Liverpool to be postponed.

Sky News also said that some people had made it into the dressing rooms.

Assistant Chief Constable Russ Jackson said: ‘The behaviour displayed today by those at both Old Trafford and The Lowry Hotel was reckless and dangerous.

‘We understand the passion many supporters have for their team and we fully respect the right for peaceful protest. Plans were in place to ensure this could happen safely, but it soon became clear that many present had no intention of doing so peacefully.

‘The actions of those today required us to take officers from front line policing and call in support from neighbouring forces to prevent the disorder getting worse.

‘At different points, bottles and barriers were thrown, officers assaulted and people scaled the stadium structure creating risk for themselves and officers.

‘We have launched an investigation and we will be working closely alongside partners to ensure we establish the full circumstances surrounding today’s events and prosecute those responsible.’

Stu Berry, Chairman of Greater Manchester Police Federation, said: ‘We witnessed appalling scenes this afternoon ? police officers are not punchbags for people protesting for their cause.

‘I don’t think there’s a football fan out there who doesn’t support peaceful protest in favour of our national game. However, the minority who have soured those efforts with mindless violence against our colleagues must be identified and prosecuted for their actions today.

‘Our thoughts are with our injured officers this evening and we hope the media can give our members the recognition they deserve.

‘At the end of their shifts, hard-working police officers should be able to go home to their families in one piece. Not be rushed to hospital.

‘We will be seeking a review of today?s operational risk assessment and public order resources on behalf of our members.’
