Police investigating Euro 2020 final disorder release images of wanted men

Detective Sergeant Matt Simpson, from the Met’s Public Order Crime Team, said: “Following the scenes of disorder both at Wembley Stadium and in central London, we made a commitment that those responsible would face consequences.

“This investigation is in its very early stages and I am in no doubt that further appeals and arrests will follow. We also continue to support police action across the UK to identify those responsible for the racist and offensive comments posted on social media.”

The Met said on Friday that two men, both aged 18, had been arrested on suspicion of stealing items that helped ticketless fans storm Wembley on the night of the final.

Former Met deputy assistant commissioner Andy Trotter has described the Wembley scenes as “a stain on our country’s reputation,” while Jane Connors, the current deputy assistant commissioner,  said the final could have been abandoned if police had not stepped in.

England players were racially abused after the team’s defeat to Italy on penalties, prompting the Government to announce it is changing the terms of football banning orders to cover online racism.
