Flares were lit and cars smashed as trouble erupted at the match between Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic on Saturday leading to 10 arrests.

Extra police were drafted in for the derby game and away fans were kept in Park Road by officers as Eagles fans left Selhurst Park following a 2-1 victory.

Around 3,000 Charlton supporters were escorted along Sangley Road towards Norwood Junction.

Investigating officers are asking residents with information on the damage to call 101.
