Police review officer's kick on football fan at Wrexham

North Wales Police are to review video footage which appears to show an officer kicking a football fan on the floor at a match in Wrexham.

Three fans were arrested at the Blue Square Bet Premier game where Wrexham beat Newport 1-0 on Saturday.

The video, posted on YouTube, shows the officer kicking the fan twice in the back.

The force said three officers were injured - one with a broken wrist - after trouble flared.

The YouTube clip shows police with batons drawn at the rear of a bus from south Wales.

Two fans appear to be involved in a scuffle on the floor and police are trying to separate them.

One officer apparently kicks a fan twice in as he lies on the floor. The fan is then dragged away.

A North Wales Police spokesman said: "We are aware of the video and will be reviewing the footage.

"Three people were arrested at the game on Sunday, two from Newport. One who has been charged with a public order offence and assaulting police, and has been bailed to appear before court.

"The other was given a caution for obstructing a constable.

"A Wrexham fan was also arrested and charged with a public order offence and has been bailed to appear before court."
