11 fans arrested after violence at QPR-Millwall

Police arrested 11 football fans for involvement in violence at

the League Championship match between London teams Queens Park

Rangers and Millwall.

Fans clashed before and after the 0-0 draw at QPR’s Loftus Road

stadium on Tuesday. Police arrested supporters for offenses

including possession of an offensive weapon, assault on police,

affray and assault.

Police did not say which team the fans supported.

Newly promoted Millwall has a long history of crowd trouble.

Most recently, it was cleared of charges of failing to control its

fans last season when one of its supporters was stabbed and 64

arrests were made at a League Cup match at local rival West

Ham.

QPR leads the second-tier league with 23 points, 11 more than

12th-placed Millwall.
