Nine charged in Manchester derby trouble

Published 1 Comments

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed nine people have been charged in connection with trouble at Sunday's Manchester derby.

Trouble flared after Manchester United's last-gasp winner in their 3-2 Barclays Premier League away victory when Rio Ferdinand was hit above the left eye by a two-pence coin thrown from the crowd as the team celebrated. With blood pouring down his face, there was more controversy when a Manchester City supporter ran on to the pitch to confront Ferdinand.

Among the charges faced by the nine people are racially aggravated public order and pitch encroachment. Police are still hunting for the person who threw the coin.
