Liverpool fan 'gets £4,000 payout after alleged false arrest at Old Trafford'

A Liverpool supporter reportedly receives £4,000 in compensation following an alleged false arrest at Old Trafford.

A Liverpool supporter has reportedly received £4,000 in compensation following an alleged false arrest at Old Trafford.

Kieth Culvin brought a lawsuit against Greater Manchester Police after he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer while trying to access the toilets after a match in 2013.

Mr Culvin, who is a member of the Spirit of Shankly committee, claimed that he usually negotiates with police before matches and thought it had been agreed that Liverpool fans would get access to the toilets while waiting for Manchester United fans to clear the stadium.

The Football Supporters' Federation has revealed details of Mr Culvin's claim, which includes accusing the officers of not keeping to the agreement.

The Liverpool fan has alleged that while talking to the authorities, one officer fell over some seats nearby, and he thought that his later arrest was because they believed that he had pushed the officer over, according to BBC News.

The case was apparently dropped once mobile phone footage of the incident emerged proving that the supporter was not the cause of the officer's tumble.
