Detectives investigating hooliganism are still trawling though 200 hours of CCTV footage seized from cameras in and around Rotherham United’s football stadium.

Disturbances broke out in New York Stadium after Rotherham scored an 85th minutes winner in a game against Millwall on Saturday, February 28.

Millwall supporters had to be held back by police officers and stewards when they tried to storm the family stand to get to the home fans.

There were further disturbances outside the ground.

Some police officers and stewards suffered injuries during the trouble.

Detective Inspector Steve Ashmore, of South Yorkshire Police, said officers were viewing footage captured before, during and after the game to identify those involved.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police are also involved in identifying the culprits.

“We are confident that we will make some arrests,” said DI Ashmore.

“We are looking at the CCTV footage meticulously and will identify those involved in any wrongdoing.”

Call police on 101.
