​Sussex police apologise to Brighton & Crystal Palace for false reports

Published on: 08 December 2017

Sussex Police are apologising to both Brighton and Crystal Palace after allegations were made about weapons being left at the stadium following a Premier League clash.

The game occurred on November 28th, with Brighton hosting Crystal Palace. There were incidents among the fans, and officers on duty reported that knives and knuckledusters had been found at the stadium following the game's completion.

However, the reports were untrue and no weapons were found. A statement from the Sussex Police stated that "the reference to weapons being found discarded at the stadium following the Brighton v Crystal Palace match on November 28 was based on information logged by our officers on the night and done so in good faith."

"Subsequently, it has been established that no such items were physically recovered at the stadium or in the city. We accept that this information was incorrect and the tweet published earlier today by one of our officers was wrong."
