Two people have been charged after disturbances at Brighton and Hove Albion's match with Crystal Palace.

Eight arrests were made following the game at the Amex stadium on Saturday - a fixture which has sparked trouble in the past.

A 21-year-old man from Croydon has been charged with possession of a firework and a 27-year-old man from Westerham has been charged with assault.

They are both due to appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court on 19 March.

Four men and a woman have been released on conditional bail, and another man has been released without charge, Sussex Police said.
