Two men have received football banning orders over trouble at a match between Derby County and Nottingham Forest.

Adam Waller, 25, of Main Road, Lower Hartsay, was charged with a public order offence after being verbally abusive to Forest fans on 22 January.

Adam Moore, 24, of Inglewood Avenue, Mickleover, was charged with affray.

At Southern Derbyshire Magistrates' Court both admitted the offences and were banned from Derby's Pride Park for five and three years respectively.

Waller, who had previously been served with a banning order, was also fined £167 with £100 costs.

Moore, who punched a man during a fight outside the ground, was fined £430 with £100 costs.

Supt Gary Parkin, who was in charge of the policing operation for the match, said: "The consequences are that both of these individuals will now be unable to attend football matches for a significant period of time for moments of sheer stupidity.

"People should be able to go to a football match without being in fear that they will be targeted or attacked."
