Police investigate Man United fans' violence

Eight football fans were arrested after violence broke out during Manchester United's League Cup victory at Barnsley on Tuesday night.
The trouble flared at half time around the catering areas at Oakwell.
Eight catering staff were trapped inside a food kiosk and had to barricade themselves in a store room for around 25 minutes as fans broke in and stole cash from the till and food from the shelves, police said.
Police said late Tuesday that "no one was injured during this time, but one police officer suffered a minor facial injury."
Barnsley accused United fans of causing "substantial damage" at its stadium. Only four of the arrested people were United supporters.
Cup holder United advanced with a 2-0 victory.
