ANOTHER three people have been arrested over violent clashes between Burnley FC and Sheffield Wednesday fans last month.

Detectives released a gallery of 22 men suspected of storming Burnley Miners Club after the clubs met in the Championship on January 18.

Three men, all from the Burnley area, aged 23, 35 and 50, have been arrested by Lancashire Police on suspicion of violent disorder and bailed pending further inquiries.

Seventeen men, mainly from Burnley and Pendle, aged from 17 to 52, have so far been detained in relation to the violence directed at Sheffield fans in their 50s and 60s who were guests at the Plumbe Street venue.
