Fans' compromise over Huddersfield travel restrictions
SUPPORTERS of Hull City and Huddersfield Town have written to West Yorkshire Police with their own compromise over travel restrictions to the Yorkshire derby.
West Yorkshire Police had said Tigers fans had to travel to Huddersfield on official coaches from the city, irrespective of where they live.
Following several hundred letters of complaints, the police came up with a compromise, allowing Hull fans to travel independently, however they must park up at Hartshead Moor Services on the M62, collect their tickets and be driving to the stadium on official coaches.
The police had also restricted the number of tickets to 1,500, when the away stand capacity is 4,000. This has now been increased to 1,700.

Some supporters described the compromise as offensive.
Fans' groups from Hull City and Huddersfield Town and the Football Supporters' Federation have sent a letter to West Yorkshire Police with their own compromise.
The letter reads: "We urge West Yorkshire Police to call a meeting with fans' groups' representatives so they can justify their position, or to ease restrictions.
"We request you remove travel restrictions, bring ticket prices down, give Hull City at least 300 more tickets (so it satisfies competition rules on away allocations) and allow matchday ticket sales."
The fans are also calling for the game to be re-classified from C-IR- the highest possible grading.
