Seven people are believed to have been involved in the fight which took place after the Ipswich Town versus Tottenham Hotspur game on January 12.

After the fracas, which happened at around 10.30pm, five men were seen chasing two others up Willoughby Road.

The incident allegedly continued around 15 minutes later back at the rail station where a man was allegedly punched and kicked to the ground.

The arrest of a 30-year-old man in South Ockenden is the third in connection with the incident.

Two other men in their 20s, one from Wrabness, Essex, and the other from Ipswich, have already been charged with violent disorder.

All three arrested in connection with the fracas were due to appear before South East Magistrates today charged with violent disorder.
