British Transport Police chief constable Andrew Trotter believes that more needs to be done to boot fan violence out of football.

British Transport Police chief constable Andrew Trotter has urged for more to be done to rid football of crowd violence.

Over the weekend, 29 arrests were made following Sunderland's 3-0 win over Newcastle United and 14 were detained after during Wigan Athletic's FA Cup semi-final win over Millwall.

"The scenes at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and in Newcastle on Sunday serve as a firm and sobering reminder that there is still much more to be done in tackling football-related disorder," the Belfast Telegraph quotes Trotter as saying.

British Transport Police also made 33 football-related arrests over the weekend.
