PSNI admit failure to protect Linfield fans…

A PROBE into security arrangements at last night’s high profile Brandywell football match between Linfield and Derry City is to take place after the PSNI admitted it failed to prevent some minor trouble. Minor trouble flared as Linfield fans left on buses, and as the PSNI is not welcome in the Bogside, a private security firm had been employed to provide security near the grounds. A sad end to what had been a promising and groundbreaking day.

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
