SEVEN people, including a 17-year-old girl, have been charged following a fight between Middlesbrough and Leeds United fans.

British Transport Police launched an investigation after a brawl at Leeds Railway Station on August 18.

That day Leeds United played at home to Wolves and Middlesbrough were away to Barnsley.

During the disorder, which involved glasses and bottles being thrown, several people were injured.

A BTP spokeswoman said four men aged between 22 and 51 years old and a 17-year-old female, all from Middlesbrough, had been charged with violent disorder. A 22-year-old man from Stockton has also been similarly charged.

Two men aged 22 and 24, from Bradford, are the sixth and seventh people charged.

All seven will appear at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on December 4.

A spokeswoman said: “Three people were arrested directly after the incident. The other four were identified through the circulation of their images to local police forces and the media.”
