Women children and disabled attacked by violent Russia fans amid useless French security

12 Jun

The build-up to the Group B clash was overshadowed by three days of violence in the French port city, with police using tear gas and water cannon.

French policing – or lack of effective French policing – has come in for fierce criticism and last night the witlessness of Euro 2016 security was laid bare once more as moments after full-time Russian ‘ultras’ charged a flimsy line of stewards which scattered immediately,

The Russian thugs were then able to run at the largely peaceable England fans at speed, punching, kicking and laying out men women and young children.

A Three Lions supporter in a wheelchair was among those attacked, while women and children were trampled as they tried to climb fences to flee.
