Derby Day 2018: Security called to Football half-time ‘brawl’

Reportedly students were throwing flares

It seems Derby Day is never without some drama as UEA's Derby Day 2018 Twitter account tweeted a video earlier today showing security had been called to the Derby Day Football match. The video has since been taken down.

The video has now been removed.

Jack Ashton, from UEA's Concrete Newspaper, reported on the football: "Half time scenes. Massive brawl. Security all called over, some guys throwing flares and others throwing them back."

He later reported that a streaker ran onto the football field. Reportedly they "high fived the keeper and ran off. Security didn't flinch."

Already earlier today it was reported that UEA students had been chanting "we're more employable than you". As of writing it remains unclear what started the incident that required security to be called.
