HC Deb 19 January 1989 vol 145 c276W
Mr. Pendry

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many arrests took place at Luton police station of Luton Town supporters following the Ipswich Town v Luton Town Littlewoods cup tie on 17 November 1987; and under the name of which club these arrests appear in the 1987–88 season arrest totals.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

Fifty-two Luton supporters were arrested in connection with damage to a coach on which they were returning to Luton from Ipswich after this match. All were subsequently released without charge. None of these arrests was included in the totals of arrests at football grounds compiled by the Association of Chief Police Officers.
