The England game on Monday was quiet for the police with no adverse incidents and people going out to watch the match in good spirits.Tonight’s game against Sweden could see more people in the pubs to watch the match and Cumbria Police are encouraging everyone to know their limits and enjoy themselves responsibly in supporting the England team.
DCI Lee Johnson said: “It is good that people are going out and enjoying watching the football match, but we just encourage everyone to be responsible for their own actions and not to lose control. Things can quickly get out of hand and spoil it for everyone, so just know your limits.
“Unfortunately it is a sad fact that domestic violence increases during football tournaments and we are encouraging anyone who is a victim to come and speak to us. We have specially trained staff on hand to speak to you and give you help and guidance. Alternatively you can contact Let go, who offer non-judgemental help and support whether or not you wish to end the relationship or not. “
