A Sheffield United fan is wanted for questioning by the police after a flash bang device used at an away game.
The device, normally used by the police to stun and disorient people, was set off in the section of Ewood Park where Sheffield United fans were when the Blades played Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday, October 3.
Flash bangs make a loud noise and emit a bright flash of light when they explode, temporarily blinding and deafening people nearby. They are also known as stun grenades.
