In this episode we are joined by freelance journalist Harry Stopes to discuss changes in the policing of football fans over the last thirty years. We look at policing's role in the wider changes in football and the representation of football fan culture. Furthermore, we consider the links between this and the policing of political protests and even the gentrification of urban spaces.
