Nine charged over rave violence
Officers were attacked with broken bottles and scaffold poles
Nine men have been charged with violent disorder in connection with a disturbance at a rave in Essex in which 64 police officers were injured.
Officers were attacked with broken bottles and scaffold poles in clashes with revellers in Great Chesterford, near Saffron Walden, in August 2006.
The men, who are aged between 18 and 40, are from Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
They will appear before Chelmsford magistrates on Friday 14 March.
More than 600 people had turned up for the rave and when police tried to break it up violence erupted.
One police officer lost a finger which was cut off during the scuffles.
