One person has been arrested following a ‘threats to kill’ social media post about tonight’s Portsmouth vs Sunderland football game.

Hampshire Constabulary says its officers detained a man in the early hours of this morning (Thursday).

A 22-year-old, from North Allerton, has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill.
