I quite agree Wendy, I assume it is because (unless I am mistaken) ITFC have to pay towards the policing so the police force see it as an additional income.  I don't see why some of the police there couldn't have been on standby for other ... [ more ]

It has always had high numbers policing it , nothing new. Those there would have had their day off cancelled too from all over Suffolk and only in duty to police the match nothing else. If the supporters could behave then zero police officers would ... [ more ]
