Notts County fans clash with police and stewards during fiery local derby with Mansfield Town

But the incident was handbags as Notts Police confirmed there were "no arrests" made at Field Mill.

The game had been moved to a 1pm kick-off time on the advice of police in an attempt to curtail tensions.

The atmosphere boiled over at one point, with images showing visiting fans grappling with officers and stewards – although it was mostly just pushing and shoving.

The match was eventually won by Mansfield with CJ Hamilton scoring twice for the Stags.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokesperson confirmed to SunSport that "no arrests" were made inside or outside the ground and the game passed without incident.


A win for Garry Flitcroft's men saw Mansfield move up to third in League Two – albeit briefly.

Notts County remain in the relegation zone, two points ahead of bottom club Macclesfield Town.
