A man has been arrested on suspicion of theft of a police hat after trouble at Saturday's FA Cup semi-final.

The Lewisham man, 27, was arrested on Tuesday following disorder at Wembley Stadium during the Millwall v Wigan Athletic match.

Fourteen people were arrested at the ground, twelve of whom were Millwall fans and two were Wigan supporters, police said.

Two men have been charged over their alleged involvement in the disorder.

Terance Cape, 43, of Peckham, south-east London, has been charged with racially aggravated behaviour and is due to appear before Hendon magistrates on 1 May.

Richard Freeman, 53, of St Neots, Cambridgeshire, was charged with breaching bail conditions .

Millwall fans fought each other during their club's 2-0 defeat by Wigan Athletic. The Football Association said it deplored the "unacceptable" scenes.

Det Ch Insp Andy Barnes said: "The violence seen at the Millwall v Wigan FA Cup fixture over the weekend is completely unacceptable.

"A significant investigation is now under way to identify all involved in order to bring them to justice in a swift and robust manner."

Wigan's victory took them through to the FA Cup final against Manchester City, which will be at Wembley on 11 May.
