    Riot police were stationed outside the ground
    Police attacked as football fans clash

    More than 200 football hooligans threw missiles at police after trouble broke out at a pre-season friendly.
    Hull City and Middlesbrough fans clashed just before kick-off on Friday evening outside Boothferry Park.

    A Humberside Police spokeswoman said one man was arrested in connection with public order offences.

    "At about 7.15pm we received a call to problems outside the ground at Boothferry Park," she said.

    Riot gear

    "There were approximately 200 football fans in altercations, about 100 from each side.

    "Police officers were being pelted with missiles."

    She said there was no trouble in the ground.

    About 7,500 fans attended the match.

    Middlesbrough and England defender Gareth Southgate scored the only goal.

    Police in riot gear were stationed outside the ground after the match.
