Two more men have been charged in connection with violence during the clearance of the Dale Farm travellers' site in Essex.

A 26-year-old German man will appear before magistrates in Southend later charged with four offences, including assault and violent disorder.

A 19-year-old man, from Aylesbury, will appear at the court on 9 November charged with a public order offence.

Three other people had earlier been charged.

The 26-year-old, who lives in Rayne, near Braintree, Essex, is charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm, violent disorder, resisting police and a public order offence.

A total of 34 people remain on police bail after being arrested during the dismantling of the UK's largest illegal travellers' site on 19 October.

Bricks and debris were thrown as police moved through the former scrapyard in Essex.

Police entered Dale Farm following a 10-year planning dispute between residents and Basildon council.
