Scenes! Hull fans clash with stewards after having their harmless banner taken [Pictures]

Hull City Tigers today succumbed to a shock 1-0 defeat to bottom of the table Crystal Palace.

The fans disappointment was added to by the shocking behaviour of the stewards.

Hull fans unfurled a flag which innocently read ‘We Are Hull City’.

Stewards somehow saw this as offensive, possibly due to the lack of ‘Tigers’, and attempted to take the banner off the fans.

However, the two groups became embroiled in a banner tug of war in which the Hull fans won.
