Police have launched an investigation after a woman was hit in the face with a traffic cone after Dundee United’s play-off first leg against Hamilton.
The 48-year-old was struck outside the ground on Tannadice Street last Thursday at about 10pm.
It’s believed the object was thrown from the direction where a group of Hamilton fans were congregating.
The woman had to be treated for her injuries at Ninewells Hospital after initially being seen to at the stadium.
Last week, United supporters’ groups spoke of their shock following the incident, believing refereeing decisions in the fiery first leg may have fuelled tensions.
Initially police had received no complaints relating to the traffic cone incident. Now though a spokesman for the force said officers were looking it.
He said: “Police Scotland has reviewed the circumstances of the disorder outside Tannadice Stadium, Dundee, last Thursday night and are appealling for witnesses to come forward.
“Anyone with any information that may be useful should contact Tayside Division on 101 quoting CR/13440/17 or speak to any Police officer. Alternatively information can be passed anonymously via the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
