Fighting broke out in the away end during Accrington's clash at Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Midway through the first half a Brisbane Road, footage emerged of a number of fans clashing with each other behind the goal.

Stewards and police arrived to try to split up the brawling supporters, although that seemed to do little to deter them.

It remains unclear who the fighting was between.

Stanley and Orient are both in trouble towards the foot of League Two.
