Four guilty of violent disorder following Wellgate riot

FOUR men have been found guilty of violent disorder after a riot broke out following a right-wing rally in Rotherham town centre.

Rotherham men Daniel Luty (20), of Redshank Road, and John Sheridan (26), of Henley Way have been found guilty by a jury along with Reece Mclaren (21), of Huddersfield, and Dennis Farrell (31), of Halifax.

The riot took place on Wellgate on September 5 2015 after a Britain-First led rally and counter protest in the town had taken place.

Juors also found Henry Fisher (21), of Rockingham Road, Rotherham, Andrew Fox (48) of Halifax and David Woodward (48), of Sowerby Bridge not guilty of a charge of violent disorder.

The jury took around four hours to reach their verdicts.

The four men will be sentenced today (Thursday) at Sheffield Crown Court.
