Football hooligans trash limo at motorway service station
Police were called to a service station forecourt this weekend after football hooligans attacked a limousine carrying rival football supporters.
A bus full of Manchester United fans had stopped off at the services of the M6 motorway and started to throw missiles at a luxury custom made limousine when they found out that there were rival Manchester City fans onboard. The limo had just pulled off the motorway to refuel on its return trip from Wembley on Saturday evening.
The thugs threw bottles of antifreeze from the petrol forecourt at the £120,000 limo, and kicked the body panels, and smashed the windscreen before rocking the vehicle violently from side to side. There were 11 terrified people onboard, the youngest of which was a 10-year-old boy.
The limo hire owner estimates that the assault caused £10,000 worth of damage to the custom made limousine after the gang of 15 football thugs descended on the luxury vehicle.
The group travelling onboard the limo were mostly boys with their dads who’d been down to Wembley to see their team play. A replacement minibus was called following the attack to transport the passengers back home safely.
The police were quick to respond, attending the petrol forecourt as soon as the incident was reported. Several of the football hooligans were subsequently arrested.
