A police officer was attacked outside the Molineux Stadium prior of England’s defeat against Hungary, prompting four arrests.

Before kick-off in Wolverhampton, the PC was stationed near the Stan Cullis stand when he was approached from behind by a group of males.

He was then smacked in the side of the head in a ‘completely unprovoked’ attack at around 7.25 p.m., according to detectives, before being brought to hospital.

“Our cop is still in the hospital, and we wish him well.”

Detective Inspector Kate Longbottom said, “We’ve spoken to some witnesses but potentially many more people were in the area and saw what happened or the offenders running off.”

“We really need to speak to them as they could have important information; I would ask them to get in touch as a matter of urgency.”

“There was a good atmosphere in the build-up to the game, high spirits and lots of families enjoying the occasion.”

“That’s what made this assault even more shocking as it appears to have been totally unprovoked.”
