    "One of the lines of enquiry we are looking at is that this was a pre-arranged fight and not a spontaneous coming together of rival groups. It is only by sheer good fortune that no-one was seriously injured," he said.

    He said last week three Notts County fans were dealt with at court for the disorder that occurred in the recent game at Mansfield Town. Two received bans from all football grounds in the country for three years.
