Extra policing at football match in South Yorkshire

Police brought in extra officers for Tuesday night's derby match between Leeds United and Barnsley.

Barnsley Football Club's website said there were "limited" tickets left for the match held at the town's 23,000-capacity stadium.

South Yorkshire Police said they took an "extremely tough line" with anyone involved in football-related disorder.

The match kicked off at 1945 BST at the Oakwell Stadium in Grove Street.

Speaking before the match, Chief Inspector Scott Green, of South Yorkshire Police, warned that anyone causing anti-social behaviour may face a court appearance and a ban from attending all football matches.
