A Newcastle United fan who punched a police horse when trouble flared following his side's 3-0 defeat to Sunderland has been jailed for a year.     

Barry Rogerson, 45, from Bedlington, Northumberland, squared up to the police horse, Bud, from West Yorkshire's mounted section, while wearing a scarf over his face.     

Almost 100 Newcastle fans were charged over their part in clashes with police after the game at St James' Park.     

Rogerson pleaded guilty at Newcastle Crown Court to violent disorder, the BBC reported.
