Police are working together after ‘incidents’ at the Brighton and Leeds game

POLICE are working with Albion and Leeds United following reports of homophobic incidents during yesterday’s Premier League game.

Twitter users also accused Leeds United fans of spitting on people and urinating in public.

Leeds eventually lost the game 0-1, with Albion currently third in the Premier League table after four games.

Liam, an Albion fan who did not give his last name, told The Argus that he saw a Leeds fan yell at a Brighton supporter, calling him ‘f****’ and ‘p**f’ have.

“He showed up once to climb over the handrails to get to the other fan and the police intervened,” Liam said.

Taking to social media, supporter Simon Fisher claimed that someone “attempted to pick a fight with my wife and 13-year-old son” at the game.

Jason Martin, another Seagulls fan who attended the game, said the abuse was “blatant” and “widespread.”

Another took to Twitter and said: “This has got to be the worst experience I’ve had at the Amex.

“There were no police around, they fought with everyone and broke down barriers.

“They were so aggressive [and] intimidating.”

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a number of public order incidents were dealt with during Saturday’s game between Brighton and Albion and Leeds United at the Amex Stadium.

“We have also received reports of homophobic comments being posted on social media.

“These incidents are being investigated in cooperation with football clubs Brighton and Hove Albion and Leeds United.

“When incidents are reported, we will investigate them and they will be recorded.”

Yesterday’s game ended 1-0 for Albion after a strong goal from Pascal Gross in the second half.

The Seagulls set a new club record nine consecutive Premier League games unbeaten and doomed the visitors to their first loss of the season.

Brighton now sit behind Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League table and play Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday.

Brighton and Hove Albion have been contacted for comment.
