Fans in court following Shrewsbury football disorder

Almost 30 people will appear in court on charges arising out of football-related disorder in Shrewsbury town centre following a six-month police investigation.

Police were called when rival groups were involved in fighting on Mardol and Smithfield Road before Shrewsbury Town's League One local derby fixture with Walsall on October 14 2012.

Twenty eight were charged after answering bail last week and will appear before Shrewsbury magistrates on several dates, starting today.
