Four charged over Lincoln City match disorder

Four men have been charged over disorder at Lincoln City's pre-season friendly with Celtic.

Flares and smoke canisters were discharged and several rival supporters clashed before, during and after Saturday's match at Sincil Bank.

Five people were injured, including a girl who was hit by a flare. They were treated in hospital.

The four men are charged with public order offences and are due before Lincoln magistrates later.

Twenty people were arrested in total, with the remainder released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Three fixed penalty notices were issued for public disorder offences.
