Eight arrests have been made today by police investigating alleged football-related violence involving Crystal Palace and Brighton fans last month.

Two men, aged 19 and 25, were detained in south London while four other men, aged, 21, 23, 32, and 43, were arrested in Sussex.

A further two men, aged 21 and 28, were subsequently arrested in the Croydon area.

All were taken to a south London police station.

The Met Police said the arrests were made following an outbreak of violence between Palace and Brighton football fans in Kings Cross on November 10 following separate matches earlier that day.

The two sides will play each other at Selhurst Park this afternoon.
