BOSSES at Huddersfield Town are investigating claims that anti-Semitic chants were directed at Leeds United fans during Saturday’s derby clash.

West Yorkshire Police said nothing had been brought to their attention during the event but added they would work with the club to establish if any incidents had taken place.

Superintendent Dave Lunn of Kirklees Division said: “This was a successful policing operation of a local derby, which saw only four arrests for public order offences.

“Our priority was around achieving a safe and enjoyable match for all those attending, both prior to and following the event.

“We worked closely with the club to achieve this outcome. I would therefore like to thank the fans for their behaviour throughout, in particular their patience in relation to exit arrangements from the ground.”
