Ugly scenes erupt at Irish football match

There were ugly scenes after the draw between Ballymena United and Lisburn Distillery as referee Mark Courtney had to be escorted off the field by police.

Courtney and his assistants waited on the pitch for almost 15 minutes while police vehicles surrounded the pitch.

Managers Tommy Wright and Paul Kirk had to be kept apart after squaring up and players were also involved in jostling.

A chair, a bottle and a leg of lamb are all believed to have been thrown toward the pitch by angry Ballymena fans.
