Have your say

EXTRA police patrols will be out in Sunderland city centre on derby day tomorrow.

Sunderland take on rivals Newcastle United at the Stadium of Light at 1.30pm.

Chief Insp George Maratty said: “We want football fans and residents to be able to enjoy the occasion and won’t allow a small minority who drink to excess and cause trouble to spoil it for the majority of real supporters.”
