Eight men, including three Merseyside police officers, have appeared in court in connection with a fight before a Liverpool versus Everton match.

A man suffered a broken jaw in the fight outside the King Harry pub in Anfield on 16 January last year.

Det Sgt Greg Symon, 39, Det Con Mark Scarrat, 43, and Det Con Christopher Sheron, 43, are charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

They were ordered to appear at Preston Crown Court in June with five others.

The other men charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice are: Colin Stewart, 43, of Store Street, Bootle; Kevin Morland, 36, of Rosedale Road, Allerton; Niall Macklin, 21, of Layton Avenue, Prenton; John Nuttall, 45, of Warnerville Road, Old Swan; Christopher Hannon, 24, of Merlin Road, Prenton.
