Police Begin Investigation On ‘White Lives Matter’ Banner Flown By Burnley Fan

White Lives Matter Banner

A ‘White Lives Matter’ Banner was flown over the Claret’s game with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Monday evening and the club have condemned the action.

Lancashire Police have said they are making full enquiries to make an assessment over whether a criminal offence has been committed with the message ‘White Lives Matter’ that was flown over City’s game with Burnley on Monday.

A Burnley supporter has taken responsibility for the banner and has refused to apologise for his actions.

But it is not yet clear whether he will face criminal action after a statement released by Chief Supt Russ Procter read: “We are making full enquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding this incident and we will then be in a position to make an assessment as to whether any criminal offences have taken place.
