Three charged by police following Villa Park trouble

Three people are charged following Aston Villa's FA Cup quarter-final with West Brom.

Three people have been charged by West Midlands Police following Aston Villa's FA Cup quarter-final with West Bromwich Albion.

A total of 17 people were arrested for various public order offences on Saturday after thousands of fans ran onto the Villa Park pitch at the end of the home team's 2-0 win.

Thirteen of those arrests took place at the Witton Arms pub, close to the ground.

A 27-year-old man and a 37-year-old man are due to appear at Birmingham Magistrates Court on March 19.

The Football Association confirmed on Sunday that they would be launching a full investigation into the disturbances after the game.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis described the scenes as "disgraceful", while Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph claimed that he was bitten during the pitch invasion.
