Five charged over trouble after Hibs-Hamilton football match

Five men have been charged over football-related disorder outside Hibernian's Easter Road stadium.

The arrests are linked to trouble which broke out after the SPFL play-off match between Hibs and Hamilton Academical on Sunday 25 May.

The men aged 17, 20, 27, 32 and 46 were held in the Seafield, Leith, Tollcross, Gorgie and Slateford areas of the city.

They have been charged with breach of the peace and will appear in court at a later date.

Police said they continue to follow a positive line of inquiry in relation to others connected with the disturbance.

Insp Stevie Sutherland said: "We will seek football banning orders in each case, and wish to send a clear message that disorder of any form will not be tolerated."
