Teenage fans charged over Starks Park flares

The incident occurred during a Scottish Cup tie at Stark’s Park and the resulted in damage to the playing surface.

The youths, both aged 16, will appear in court at a later date.

Inspector Jane Combe, police commander for the match, said, “This dangerous behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

“Pyrotechnics of any kind at football matches are extremely dangerous and can cause significant life-changing injuries for those carrying them.

“Two arrests have now been made, however, with the full assistance of Raith Rovers and Dunfermline Athletic Football Club, as well as some fans who have come forward, we continue to investigate this matter thoroughly.”
