Police are hunting for four West Ham fans after the attack on the Manchester United team bus.

Fans threw bottles and other objects, smashing the vehicle's window and ahead of West Ham's final ever game at the Boleyn Ground on Tuesday night.

Four police officers were injured in the disorder and kick-off was delayed by 45 minutes as a result.

Commander BJ Harrington said the police were working closely with both clubs to "bring the individuals to justice".

"I would urge anyone who recognises the men in these pictures to contact police," he said.
