Football fans unexpectedly meet before Wembley


Sunday 28th February 2016 – 6.55pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.



Whilst the road to Wembley may have been an enjoyable one for their respective teams, it was not such plain sailing for a group of Liverpool and Manchester City fans following an RTC on the M6 this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a two car collision on the southbound carriageway of the M6 between junctions 15 and 14, shortly after 11.10am. Two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to discover two cars that had been in collision, one with front end damage and one with rear end damage.

“It certainly wasn’t the start to the day the car occupants were hoping for as one contained three Liverpool fans and the other four Manchester City fans, all on their way to Wembley for the Capital One Cup Final.

“Two men and a young boy were assessed at the scene but thankfully they were uninjured and all discharged at scene.

“Hopefully they were all able to complete their journey to Wembley in time for kick-off, with one set of fans at least having a more enjoyable trip home.”
