Tension and breaking glass as London police disperse fan gathering that turns tense

Jubilation gave way to tension as an England fan was thrown to the floor in an altercation with police in London's Piccadilly Circus on Saturday night (3 July). The central London junction has become a gathering point for England fans, some of them drunk, after their team beat Ukraine 0-4 in Rome earlier. Police went on to clear fans from the area. There were also reports of bottles being thrown. England will now go on to play Denmark in the quarter-final of the Euro 2020 competition.
