Newcastle United to sue streakers


Newcastle United is to sue two fans who cost it £13,000 in Uefa fines for streaking during Europa League games at St James' Park.

Steve Storey, the Premiership club's security chief, said: "People who think running on the pitch is fun or funny should realise it isn't. We will be seeking compensation."
