Police hunting three Spurs 'fans' for pelting Walcott with coins

Police are hunting down three Tottenham 'fans' who pelted Arsenal winger Theo Walcott with coins during last month's derby.

Walcott came under a shower of missiles from Tottenham fans as he was carried off on a stretcher in the north London derby at the Emirates on January 4.

Stewards and St John Ambulance staff were also hit by the coins after Walcott made a 2-0 gesture with his hands.

Scotland Yard today released grainy pictures of the three men suspected of attacking the winger.

A statement said: "During the match, an Arsenal player on a stretcher, medical staff carrying him and stewards were struck by coins and other missiles thrown at them from a section of the crowd occupied by Tottenham fans.

"The player and stewards received minor injuries as a result. Officers from the Metropolitan Police launched an investigation and have now identified three men they would like to contact."
