But at full time at Carrow Road this afternoon, the day seemed to pass without any major incidents as both sides headed home following a 1-1 draw.

More than 27,000 people turned out for the match, which saw Jacob Murphy’s hammer strike beat inspired Ipswich keeper Bartosz Bialkowski to stretch Norwich City’s unbeaten run in the East Anglian derby to eight games.

The officer in charge of policing today’s game, Chief Superintendent Dave Marshall said it was only a tiny minority of people they would be focussing on.

But a policing operation involving more than 300 officers from both counties was designed with the aim of keeping people safe and to assist travelling fans from the train station and coach park to the stadium.
