VIDEO: Police investigating crowd clash at Essex derby

Police are investigating crowd trouble which occurred at the Essex derby between Southend and Colchester on Saturday.

Footage filmed by a supporter at the game, shows a fan running towards the stand occupied by Colchester United fans.

It appears to show him throwing punches at people in the crowd. The incident took place towards the end of the League One match at Southend's Roots Hall. Police are keen to identify those responsible.

The derby was a dramatic affair on and off the pitch.

The U's will have to cope without midfielder Alex Gilbey for their next three games after he was shown a straight red card for that challenge on Ryan Leonard.

Southend scored three goals in the last ten minutes to secure a three-nil victory over their local rivals.
