Four arrests at derby match between Rotherham United and Doncaster Rovers
Doncaster Rovers' Keepmoat Stadium

POLICE made four arrests after disorder broke out at Saturday’s South Yorkshire derby between Rotherham United and Doncaster Rovers.

One person was arrested on suspicion of breaching a Section 35 dispersal order and the others were arrested for public order offences at the game at Doncaster's Keepmoat Stadium.

A police spokesman said three more people were ejected from the stadium for drinking and smoking in the stands. 

Police also received a report of an assault which is believed to have taken place after the match, which finished 1-1 following a last minute Millers' equaliser by striker Kieffer Moore.

The spokeswoman was unable to confirm whether those arrested were men or women or whether they had been released from custody.
