Twenty one men have been charged in connection with disruption at a football match in Scunthorpe in April.

The incidents took place at Scunthorpe United's clash with Swindon at Glanford Park on 27 April which saw Scunthorpe relegated from League One.

The 21 men face charges including public order offences, using threatening words to provoke violence and racially aggravated harassment.

They are due to appear before North Lincolnshire Magistrates later in July.

Meanwhile, police have released a series of images of other men also believed to have been involved in the disruption.

Supt Dave Hall, from Humberside Police, said: "The acts of these individuals are in total isolation to the overwhelming majority of people who watch Scunthorpe United when they play football all across the country.

"The people we want to trace are those who, it seems, are intent on spoiling things for others."

Anyone who can identify the men pictured is asked to contact Humberside Police.
