The BBC has obtained footage of two men vandalising a car belonging to Nottingham Forest's chairman after Saturday's match against Derby County.

Fawaz Al Hasawi tweeted a photo of his Mercedes-Benz Viano with a tyre slashed and a number plate missing after the game at the iPro Stadium.

The video, filmed outside the ground, shows two men trying to pull a windscreen wiper off the vehicle.

Derbyshire Police said they were investigating.

Nottingham Forest won the game 2-1 but trouble flared after the final whistle.

The vandalism, as well as an alleged assault on Reds player Kelvin Wilson, prompted an apology from Sam Rush, Derby's chief executive, earlier on Monday.

Mr Rush said the events "brought shame" on the club.

On Saturday, Mr Al Hasawi tweeted a photo of the damage to his car.

The tweet read: "Very professional! But in the end I don't mind at all! The 3 points are more important!"

The alleged attack on defender Wilson happened when a man ran onto the pitch after full-time and appeared to make contact with the player, who fell to the ground.

A 23-year-old has been arrested and bailed, said police.
