Rudy Gestede in action against Middlesbrough Credit PA

Children were among those injured as more than 200 fans fought in a coach park following a football game.

Five people have been arrested on suspicion of a number of offences and are in police custody; however arrests are expected to increase as the investigation unfolds.

Those arrested are now in custody, with Cleveland Police saying they expect to make more arrests as the investigation continues.

The trouble began just before the final whistle in the stadium, following a pitch invasion by some away fans.

One police officer had to be taken to hospital after suffering injuries in the brawl.

Middlesbrough won the Championship game 1-0.

Cleveland Police Assistant Chief Constable Jason Harwin said the force would "absolutely not tolerate violence of this nature".

"The vast majority of fans accept that football..."

Interestingly, in March, a Russian MP who approved the violent behaviour of his country's football supporters at the European Championships in France a year ago had suggested that hooliganism could be legalised and turned into a spectator sport.
