Burnley’s Hannover clash abandoned after crowd trouble

Burnley’s pre-season fixture against Hanover 96 was abandoned after hooligans went on the rampage at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Trouble broke out in the section occupied by Hanover fans, with seats thrown and reports that knives were brandished at stewards trying to keep the thugs away from the Burnley supporters.

With the situation threatening to get out of hand, the match was called off at half-time on police advice.
