Arrests after Celtic match at Lincoln City

A number of arrests have been made following Lincoln City's pre-season friendly with Celtic.

Lincolnshire Police said there were several incidents of disorder and assault in the city after the match at Sincil Bank.

Most of those arrested were from the Lincoln area but one fan from Glasgow was detained. No charges have been made so far.

Extra officers were deployed at Saturday's game.

Charlie Creane, landlord of the Golden Cross on Lincoln's High Street, said violence broke out in his pub at around 1515 BST as fans were leaving to watch the game.

He said: "Bottles started getting thrown and my daughter, in the middle, who was there helping me out, get a bottle on the head.

"She received stitches from the hospital, she was up there for three hours because of their stupidity."
