Leeds violence
Violence marred the festival held over the August Bank Holiday
Fifteen people, including five juveniles, have been charged with violent disorder following violence at a music festival in Leeds.

Bricks and missiles were thrown at police and campsite toilets were set on fire.

It took police and site security more than two hours to bring the violence under control.

The festival was held at Temple Newsam over the August Bank Holiday.

The ten adults are due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court on 14th January.

The five juveniles will appear in the city's youth court the following day.
