Police have praised the behaviour of football fans during Nottingham Forest's end of season battle with rivals Leicester City.

The Foxes clinched a play-off place with a dramatic 3-2 win over Forest at the City Ground, which meant the home side missed out on the play-offs.

Officers said three arrests were made in a crowd of 28,646 at the ground.

Two men were arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace and one man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

A woman and two men were also arrested on suspicion of assault during a dispute after the match in Pavilion Road, near the ground.

Supt Mark Holland said: "The policing operation went well and I'd like to thank the vast majority of fans for their good behaviour."

Leicester City now face Watford at home in the first leg of their Championship play-off semi-final on Thursday.
