Marseille, France – Around 250 England supporters pelted police with drink cans outside a bar in the southern French city of Marseille late 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.
