Residents Believe Football Violence Could Be Halted By Removing Seats ; Police Deny Saying 'If They Had A Brain They'd Be Dangerous'

Following Saturday's clash at Swindon Town's match against Bristol Rovers, several concerned residents have asked for the Council to ban seats at future football matches to deny thugs the chance to throw anything.

'' I don't think the residents who have raised this have really thought it through since I'm sure they'd just find something else to throw, probably each other, or the referee'' , said Paul Lemmon Sports And Disasters Officer.

Suggestions that the same residents would have asked for icebergs to be made illegal after the sinking of the Titanic have been dismissed as frivolous.

In a totally unrelated story, other residents have asked to have a footpath closed since drug debris is found covering the right of way.
