Marseille Violence: City 'Like A Battlefield'
Witnesses describe gangs looking for English fans to attack, with tear gas fired and bottles thrown as violence flares once more.
The scene in the French city of Marseille has been described as being "like a battlefield", after England fans clashed with Russian supporters on the streets.
French police fired tear gas and used water cannon on fans on a third day of unrest in the lead up to the Three Lions' first game of Euro 2016.
The match ended with a 1-1 draw at Marseille's Stade Veledrome.
Sky's Sports Correspondent Paul Kelso said a gang of what appeared to be Russian supporters stormed into the old port area of the city, looking for English fans to attack in the hours before kick-off.
He said: "A gang of what appears to be Russian supporters, hooligans, very well organised, stormed into the old port area and looked for English fans to attack.
"Bottles being hurled at England fans and what appears to be a lack of containment. Lots of injuries. Head injuries. Some nasty cuts and the police, whatever tactics they tried to employ, clearly hasn't worked.
"For the second time in more than 18 years, Marseille looks more like a battlefield."
At least five people have been wounded in the violence, with six people arrested.
TV footage showed fans throwing chairs taken from restaurant terraces and fighting on a stairway, where one man was seen kicking another down the stairs.
Sky's Siobhan Robbins said she saw 300 youths storm down a street in the same part of the city.
Robbins said she had been told they were local French youths.
She said: "We saw chairs being thrown, we saw bottles being thrown, tables being thrown.http://news.sky.com/story/1710510/marseille-violence-city-like-a-battlefield
The police are pathetic, they're only arsed when it concerns the English.
