The force confirmed that there were three football related arrests in Derbyshire yesterday evening (Sunday, July 11).
While Derbyshire police could not confirm where the arrests had taken place or what the nature of the offences were – a spokesperson said “it was a much steadier night than anticipated”.
There were reports that officers in the county had cancelled annual leave in preparation for trouble after the match where Gareth Southgate’s side lost to Italy during penalties in the Euros 2020 final held at Wembley.
