Disorder follows Newcastle-Sunderland football derby
Four police officers were injured as trouble broke out in Newcastle following Sunderland's 3-0 win over Newcastle United at St James' Park.
Bottles were thrown and bins set on fire as mounted officers tried to move crowds back to allow visiting fans to be escorted to Metro and rail services. Northumbria Police said 29 arrests were made during the game itself.
A spokesman said officers were studying CCTV footage of the city centre to identify the troublemakers.
