Two people have been charged following a disturbance in Walker yesterday.

At around 12 noon yesterday (Mon) police received a report that a group of people had been fighting with one another on Dunstanbrugh Road in Walker.

Three people were arrested by police following their attendance at the incident and officers have now charged two of those individuals.

They will appear before Bedlington Magistrates Court this morning.
