Four men have been charged after three officers were injured during clashes between football fans in Shropshire, police said.

West Mercia Police said 11 other people were arrested and bailed or released without charge when Shrewsbury Town played Walsall on Sunday.

A spokesperson said the four charged were given football banning orders.
