Police are on a hunt for a group of men suspected of assaulting rescue workers and assaulting a passerby in Trafalgar Square on the day of the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.

Met Police released four photos of the men they believe are linked to the attacks and urged anyone who recognizes them to come forward.

The public can contact officers by calling 101 quoting CAD 3224/23Sep or by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.

The day was marred by the actions of thugs and hooligans, with witnesses describing some of the scenes as “terrifying”.

Before the game England and Italy football fans clashed in Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, setting off fireworks last night as riot police struggled to disperse the restive crowd after the Three Lions’ crushing Euro defeat at Wembley.

Meanwhile, an England support yob was filmed sticking a torch up his bum and snorting cocaine before entering Wembley without a ticket.

Ahead of the game, Britain’s Transport Police – who patrol the country’s rail network – reported “multiple instances” of flares being lit in London stations.

Some even climbed onto a bus outside the site, while others let out red-and-white smoke outside King’s Cross train station in the capital during the celebratory set-up.

Later that day, more than 1,000 fans broke through the barriers in front of Wembley Stadium, causing one of the goals to fall off its hinges.

A scammer posing as a steward in a safety vest reportedly stole a child’s wheelchair from his father and pushed it towards the entrance.

The stewards had to try to contain the situation outside and stem the tide of ticketless people while there was no police presence inside the stadium, the Daily Mail reported at the time.

Broken gates and turnstiles would have allowed people to gain access to the stadium while the game was still being played in overtime, it is also claimed.

Police made 86 arrests that day – including 53 at the National Stadium – for a range of offences, including public order offences, ABH, drunkenness and misconduct and criminal damage.

Meanwhile, F1 driver Lando Norris was “shaken up” after being mugged for his £40,000 watch after the final.

After the incident, a spokesman for the McLaren team said the 21-year-old was “understandably shocked”.

The statement read: “McLaren Racing can confirm that Lando Norris was involved in an incident following the Euro 2020 final at Wembley in which the watch he was wearing was stolen

While the behavior of England fans at Wembley was generally positive throughout the tournament, there were reports of intimidation and aggression after the semi-final against Denmark.
