A punch-up started at Bloomfield Road between Blackpool fans and Leeds supporters who were sat in the home end.

Women and children were also nearby.

The incident occurred after hundreds of Blackpool fans chose to boycott the game in protest at the club’s owners.

Supporters are unhappy at the way the Oyston family are running the club and held a demonstration outside the ground before the kick-off, before going to watch AFC Blackpool in the North West Counties league.

Blackpool tied Leeds United with both teams scoring one goal each.
