French police use tear gas to disperse English soccer fans at the European Championship on Wednesday, the fourth time England fans have been involved in violent incidents since the start of the tournament.
After a match between Russia and Slovakia ended in the north French city of Lille, police chase large groups of English fans through the back streets around the city’s main railway station.
A group of about 200 English fans had been getting progressively rowdier and noisier, singing songs taunting Russia, when a loud explosion is heard and some bottles are thrown.
Police appear to make at least one arrest, pinning a man against the ground. Police then charge, spraying tear gas in front of them as they run. Some bystanders take refuge in a nearby pharmacy.
England plays in the nearby city of Lens on Thursday and thousands of their supporters have gathered in Lille.
