Euro 2021 Final: Small Number Of Fans Broke Into Wembley- Police

Published

on

Police said a small number of ticketless fans broke into Wembley Stadium for the Euro 2020 final, after videos showed crowds pushing through barriers.

Fans fought with stewards and police as they attempted to break through the gates.

The Metropolitan Police said it was working with security staff to prevent further breaches.

Police said they will also support officials in ejecting ticketless fans.

The statement from police came after Wembley Stadium initially denied that anyone without a ticket had gained entry, saying: “There were no security breaches of people without tickets getting inside the stadium.”

In a later statement, a stadium spokesperson said: “There was a breach of security and a small group of people got into the stadium.

“We are now working closely with stadium stewards and security to remove these people. Anyone inside the stadium without a ticket will be instantly ejected.”

Footage from inside Wembley showed fans fighting, apparently after some had forced through a door.

A large crowd was also trying to enter the fan zone in Trafalgar Square without tickets shortly before kick-off, the Met Police said.

Police said they were “engaging with the crowd and telling them to disperse”.

At Wembley, a man was taken to hospital after he was hit by a bus on High Road. Police said the bus driver stopped at the scene and the man’s injuries are not said to be life-threatening.
