CCTV of a pitch invasion following Sheffield United’s play-off semi-final against Swindon Town is to be examined by police.

The invasion happened after the 5-5 draw which saw Swindon beat the Blades 7-6 on aggregate to get through to the League One play-off final at Wembley.

Whiltshire Police warned that arrests may be made after footage from Monday night’s game at the County Ground is examined.

Police said some baton strikes were used at the Sheffield United end to prevent disorder between the supporters, which was triggered by a pitch invasion, mainly by Swindon supporters.
