Police gear up for Westcountry derby

(Last Updated On: February 20, 2015)

Police are getting ready for tomorrow’s match between Exeter City and Plymouth Argyle at St. James Park.

The all-ticket match looks likely to draw in a bumper crows and there will be extra police support in attendance to help it all run smoothly.

Superintendent Craig Downham said: “Whilst our officers will be visible as part of our policing of the match, this is not cause for alarm. We are operating a low-key approach to policing this game and as ever we are looking at engaging with all the public, whether they are football fans or shoppers, in a friendly manner.”

Additional officers will be out and about in the build up, during and post match. There will also be support available from the dog and mounted police units.

Supt Downham added: “It is an all-ticket match and we remind Plymouth fans that if you do not have a ticket you will be turned away at the ground.”

The public have been asked to allow for extra time for journeys as congestion is expected around the area and on public transport throughout Saturday

Local Police units will be tweeting throughout the day, please see @DC_Police for the latest information.
