Detectives investigating a violent clash at the QPR v Wigan Championship play-off semi-final have arrested two men today.

Officers detained the 29 and 35-year-olds this morning following the disorder which took place on the upper tier of the South Africa Road stand in Loftus Road on May 12.

Both were taken to a north London police station and bailed to a date in early July.

Yesterday, police released shocking video footage of the clash which erupted after a steward tried to remove a fan from the stands.

They also released images of five men they would like to speak to in connection with the incident.
