ENGLAND cricket fans have been spotted brawling in the stands at Headingley.
The Yorkshire crowd were in fine voice on the Western Terrace as they enjoyed another impressive display from the home side – who have already won the three-match series over New Zealand.
Spectators could be seen getting into a fight in the stands
A fan could be seen being taken away by police at the ground
But that excitable atmosphere boiled over on the evening of day four as the cameras caught a few individuals fighting inside the ground.
A man in an old England shirt could be seen trying to throw punches at another man sitting behind him in the stands.
Commentator and former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull was heard saying on Sky Sports: “Bit of biffo on the Western Terrace there.”
Reacting to the scenes in the stands, one social media user said: “No one seeing or caring about Crawley’s wicket because they were watching a fight in the stands instead. God bless the Western Terrace.”

Another added: “The simple answer is, if you don’t like this sort of thing, then don’t buy a ticket on the Western Terrace.
“After all, it is not as if that part of the ground doesn’t have a reputation for this sort of thing.”
And a third said: “Oh the Western Terrace have woken up. Must’ve been that twelfth beer…”
Meanwhile on the pitch, England set themselves a target of 296 to win as they eye a 3-0 Test series victory.

With new captain Ben Stokes leading the side, England beat New Zealand at both Lord’s and Trent Bridge.
They then closed day three of the Third Test with New Zealand on 168-5 – the visitors leading by just 137 runs – after Jonny Bairstow hit a sensational 162.
Daryl Mitchell and Tom Blundell put on a partnership worth more than 100 to hand New Zealand back the ascendency.
But Matt Potts and Jack Leach then quickly removed the tail to give England a more than reachable target of 296 to win.
