Police have arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of violent disorder at the final West Ham game after he handed himself in to authorities.

The man has been bailed pending further enquires to a date in mid-August after handing himself into an east London police station on Friday.

The identities of other men wanted as part of the appeal are still being sought by detectives.

Police have so far arrested three men in connection with disorder both inside and outside the Boleyn Ground on May 10.

Two – one 18, the other 47 – have been bailed to a date in late May after being held for pitch incursions, while a 20-year-old was arrested for affray after being suspected of throwing bottles at police and was bailed until late August.
