Now that I know it’s Newcastle and can see the smoke it was a petrol bomb that was lobbed wasn’t it? 

Indeed. Geordies giving West Ham Uniteds ICF a warm welcome by lobbing a molotov cocktail at them. That's the 80s for you.

A couple in the picture are in the Panarama documentary. Bolton get a mention. Billy Plummer and Harry the Dog both died before their time.
