Leeds United supporting policeman in Wales became a viral hit.
Hello Charlie. Yes it's me I'm afraid. I'm shocked at how viral the video has gone. Luckily my bosses have seen it as good PR for Gwent Police and with all the nice comments, they couldn't argue. Good to meet you fella. Leeds fans are brilliant!— Mark (@madley66) January 8, 2018
As I said on Twitter, its nice to see the police treat football fans as actual people, not as an invading barbarian horde. It doesn’t hurt that he supports Leeds, of course, but this just goes to show that treating football fans the right way goes a long way to keeping the peace and spreading some good will.
