On Wednesday 4 February, at around 9:30pm, a group identified by the police as members of the Exeter University Football Club were involved in an incident at Neptune’s fish and chip shop on Heavitree Road.
A police spokesperson confirmed: “we had a report that chairs were thrown through the shop into the kitchen area. Staff were terrified. The group moved onto Timepiece where police units caught up with them.”
When Exeposé contacted Andy Higham, AU President, for comment he said: “unfortunately I can’t help, as I don’t know anything about any incident at all.”
A spokesperson for the University said: “The incident is the subject of an ongoing police investigation. We have no further updates on this alleged incident to date.”
Exeposé contacted the captains from EUAFC but had received no reply at the time of going to print.
Staff members at Neptune’s confirmed there had been an incident but refused to comment.
