Seventeen Forest and Notts football fans arrested over mass city brawl
Seventeen football fans of two teams in Nottingham have been arrested over a huge brawl in the city centre.
Groups of Nottingham Forest and Notts County fans were involved in a fight at the Major Oak pub in Pelham Street, Nottingham, on 19 March.
Police said they believed the fight had been organised between two gangs.
The men, aged between 19 and 28, included 11 Forest fans and six Notts fans. They were arrested early on Tuesday morning.
The arrests were made across Nottingham and Derbyshire.
Ch Supt Mark Holland said: "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."
Last week two Notts County fans were banned from all football grounds in the country for three years following trouble at a Mansfield Town game.
