Arrests over Sunderland-West Ham disorder

Five people have been arrested over disorder which broke out ahead of a Premier League clash between Sunderland and West Ham last month.

Violence, which police think was pre-arranged, erupted in Sunderland city centre on 12 January.

Those arrested, at addresses in Sunderland, South Shields and Chester-le-Street, remain in custody.

Northumbria Police said a further 20 people believed to have been involved in the disorder were being sought.
