Sheffield United fan eliminated from enquiries over '˜flash bang' device at Blackburn Rovers game
A Sheffield United fan wanted for questioning by the police after a flash bang device was used at an away game has been eliminated from their enquiries.
Following a CCTV appeal circulated earlier this month in relation to an incidentÂ at the Blackburn Rovers v Sheffield United FC match in October, officers have now identified a man.
However, he has now been eliminated from enquiries and the investigation is ongoing and police in Lancashire continue to appeal for information about the incident.
On Wednesday,Â October 3 at around 7.45pm, the two teams met at Ewood Park, Blackburn, to play in an EFL Championship fixture.
A short time after kick off, it is reported that a flash bang was set off in the ground, where SUFC fans were sitting. Officers believe that the item was thrown into the crowd by a fan.
Anyone with information is asked to contactÂ Lancashire PoliceÂ directly by emailing PC160 Moore, the Blackburn Rovers Dedicated Football Officer, onÂ email@example.com, or PC545 Fish onÂ firstname.lastname@example.org.
