Reality Check

Colin Hendry, from the Manchester United Independent Supporters Association, said he thought police were too heavy-handed...

"The barricade went up, the Glazers started to move and people sat down in front of the barricade.
"But police in riot gear, with batons, without warning, without instruction to disperse, just attacked those people."

I don't know about you, but it's not that much of an overreaction when the same article states:

Echoes of "die, Glazer die" rumbled around the stadium as about 300 fans vented their frustration.

At least one party here is exaggerating.
