Serbia will allow violent conduct charges against England Under-21 players Steven Caulker and Thomas Lees and assistant coach Steve Wigley to be dealt with by the British justice system, a source told Reuters.

The Football Association and the Ferdinand brothers led a wave of angry reaction tonight to UEFA's fine for Serbia.
