South Wales Police confirm that no arrests were made before, after or during the derby between Cardiff City and Swansea City.

South Wales Police have confirmed that no arrests were made at the Premier League encounter between Cardiff City and Swansea City yesterday.

The authorities are said to have stepped up their security measures ahead of the clash, which ended 1-0 in the Bluebirds' favour at the Cardiff City Stadium.

"Working in partnership with both football clubs in the run-up and during the game we were able to provide a trouble free environment for everyone who attended as well as a positive impression to the millions of people who were watching on television around the world," quotes Superintendent Tony Smith as saying.

"The good behaviour of the fans, the stewarding at Cardiff City Football Club and effective policing all combined to create an enjoyable evening for everyone."

While no fans are expected to face punishment, Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey reportedly could be the subject of an FA charge after allegedly making a 'swim away' gesture at Cardiff supporters at the end of the clash.
