Two men have been arrested after a car was reportedly driven towards a crowd leaving a rugby match.

Police were called to Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium shortly after the home side’s 25-9 Gallagher Premiership victory over Wasps on Saturday amid reports a car was driven at supporters leaving the ground.

Police said the driver then got out of the car and threatened people with a baseball bat before being restrained by an off-duty special constable and members of the public.
