Arrest after Stags owner attack

Mansfield Town
Mansfield face relegation from the Football League

A man has been arrested after the owner of Mansfield Town was attacked following his side's defeat in a crucial League Two relegation match.

Police confirmed they were called to the club's boardroom just before 1700 BST on Saturday after an attack on Keith Haslam.

He suffered minor head injuries and was released from the King's Mill Hospital following treatment.

A 45-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of assault.

He was being questioned at Mansfield police station on Sunday afternoon.

The Stags were defeated 1-0 at home to Rotherham and are now almost certain to be relegated to non-league football.

The side will be relegated on Tuesday if Chester draw with Stockport.
