Ten men who were arrested after violence broke out between Crystal Palace and Brighton fans in central London have been released on bail, police have said.

It happened after Brighton fans travelling back from a 3-3 draw at Wolves and Palace supporters returning from a victory at Peterborough clashed in the King's Cross area on November 10.

Four of the ten men were arrested in Sussex while six were held in Croydon and other parts of South London, Scotland Yard said. All have been bailed until January.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Barnes said police would seek football banning orders where appropriate.

The men were arrested this weekend prior to a Championship meeting between the two teams at Selhurst Park on Saturday, won 3-0 by Palace, who went top of the league as a result.
