Carnage with brawls at Wembley and bottles thrown in Leicester Square – .


F-year-old fought outside Wembley Stadium and threw bottles in Leicester Square as problems erupted hours before the Euro 2020 final.

Images posted online showed police officers and flight attendants trying to separate fighting fans as they made their way through guardrails.

A spokesperson for Wembley Stadium said: “We are dealing with an incident that took place in the outside security perimeter of the stadium, with support from the police.
“Security measures were quickly activated in the affected areas and there were no breaches of the security of people without tickets entering the stadium. “
Former player turned expert Chris Kamara said he had had a ‘horrible walk through Wembley’ and had to dodge the bottles thrown by the crowd.
Metropolitan Police said the force was working with Wembley security staff to prevent further violations at the stadium.
“Earlier this afternoon there was a security breach at Wembley Stadium which resulted in a small number of people entering the stadium without a ticket.
“Officers worked closely with security officials to prevent any further breaches.
“We will also support the action of officials at Wembley Stadium to identify those without tickets and to eject them. “
Some people inside Wembley said fans stayed in the lobby the entire first half, watching the game. People who left their seats at half-time were asked to show a ticket before returning, one said.
The Met also said some people without tickets were trying to enter the Trafalgar Square fan zone.
The force tweeted: “A large crowd of fans gathered near the Trafalgar Square fan zone to try to enter without tickets.
“There are no more tickets or seats available in the fan zone. We engage with this crowd and tell them to disperse.
It comes after fans gathered in Leicester Square toss bottles and plants across the street and push trash cans.
“Police were called at 5:49 pm Sunday July 11 to report a collision involving a pedestrian and a bus in High Road, Wembley,” a statement from the PA news agency said.
“The officers were present with the London Ambulance Service.
“The pedestrian – a man – was taken to hospital where his condition was assessed as not life threatening.
“The bus driver stopped at the scene.
“No arrests were made. Investigations are ongoing.
Smoke from the flares is believed to have set off fire alarms, with passengers initially being told to change their trip.
UK Transport Police said they received reports of an incident at 12:40 p.m. and that the station was reopened at 1:07 p.m.
The day started even earlier for some, with thousands lining up outside the pubs this morning to secure a table for the game which starts at 8pm tonight.
