England fans clash with police on eve of Russia match

Marseille: Around 250 England supporters pelted police with drink cans outside a bar in the southern French city of Marseille late on Thursday ahead of the country’s opening Euro 2016 match, a police source said. A 24-year-old Englishman was arrested and spent the night in custody after the trouble in the Vieux-Port area of the Mediterranean city.

Police used teargas to disperse the England fans. England fans also clashed with a group of young Frenchmen, with one Englishman needing hospital treatment for a minor injury. A 30-year-old Frenchman was also arrested after stealing an England football shirt. England face Russia in Marseille on Saturday in their opening match of the European Championships.
