Who threw flare onto Field Mill pitch?
POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a flare was thrown onto the pitch moments after the final whistle at Field Mill on Saturday.
Players had just left the playing area after Mansfield Town's 2-0 FA Cup to Middlesbrough in the big televised match when the flare landed on the pitch.

No-one was injured in the incident, but police are now hunting for the offender.

A spokesman said: "The flare appears to have been thrown from the area of the Oasis Club car park. Fortunately no-one was hurt, but we would urge anyone with information to contact us."

Nottinghamshire County Council's Safety Advisory Group has said the incident is a police matter.

Anyone with information should contact police on Mansfield 420999.
