Three people have been charged with violent disorder and arson following disurbances in Lincolnshire on Sunday.

The three were remanded into custody and will appear at Boston Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

Another person charged with theft, and a fifth charged with violent disorder, will appear in court at a later date.

More than 100 people are thought to have been involved in the trouble, which followed England's defeat by France in Euro 2004 on Sunday.

Six other people who were arrested following the incident have been bailed and will return for questioning at a later date.

Lincolnshire Police are asking for any witnesses who have information about the incident to contact them.
