Last updated : 18 August 2012 By Covsupport News Service

One person has been arrested after a flare was thrown on the pitch during Coventry City's 1-1 draw at Yeovil Town.

A flare with blueish smoke was hurled onto the pitch in the 56th minute from the open terrace where City supporters were housed, causing a short stoppage in play before the flare was extinguished by stewards.

A male was arrested after the game by West Midlands Police officers and now faces another trip to Yeovil to explain his alleged actions to a magistrate.
