VISITING Cambridge United fans caused hundreds of pounds worth of damage at the Lamex Stadium last night as their side lost a crucial and highly charged game against Stevenage Boro 2-1.

A Boro steward was also knocked to the ground as United fans complained about being crushed at the front of the away stand and forced open a gate to get on to the area between the goal and the corner flag.

The steward was helped away and treated by St John's Ambulance officials but did not need hospital treatment.

This morning the full extent of the damage in the away stand was revealed with 10 seats ripped from their concrete bases and two advertising boards torn down and damaged.
