A man has been arrested over an attack on a car belonging to Nottingham Forest's chairman during a match against Derby County.

The car was vandalised while parked outside the iPro Stadium in Derby at about 14:15 GMT on Saturday.

The Mercedes-Benz Viano belonging to Fawaz Al Hasawi had its rear windscreen wiper and personal registration plate torn off and its tyres deflated.

Derbyshire police said a 19-year-old was arrested on Tuesday morning.

A spokesman said officers were continuing their inquiries and were still looking to trace anyone else involved in the attack.

The BBC obtained footage which shows two men vandalising the car.
