TEENAGE Blades supporters are being hunted by police after they attacked rival football fans with stones at Sheffield railway station.

The Barnsley fans were pelted with stones by around 15 youths while waiting on platform three.

One needed hospital treatment for a head injury.

The youths, believed to be Sheffield United supporters, were aged just 13 to 18 and wore casual clothing. They picked up the stones from the nearby tram track.

One of the Barnsley fans received a cut to his head after being struck with a sharp stone. PC Tim Shellcock, from British Transport Police, said: “Behaviour such as this will not be tolerated.”
