Reece Mclaren, Daniel Lee Luty, Dennis Farrell and John James Sheridan were convicted of violent disorder at Sheffield Crown Court yesterday.

Luty, Farrell and Sheridan each received two-year jail terms. McLaren was jailed for two years and eight months. Their sentences were increased by a third by the judge, taking into account the racial motivation of their actions.

Police launched an investigation after disorder broke out in Rotherham town centre on Saturday 5 September 2015, following a demonstration earlier that day.

A number of people were injured after bottles and bricks were thrown.
