Seven supporters have been arrested in the wake of celebrations following Newcastle United's late goal at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium.

Dorset Police said a 14-year-old boy and six men were arrested on suspicion of entering the playing area.

Away fans spilled onto the pitch when Newcastle equalised in the 94th minute of Saturday's 2-2 Premier League draw.

A female steward suffered a nose injury and officers are trying to determine whether or not she has been assaulted.
