30 detainees after confronting England and Scotland .. and a video monitors what
London police said, on Saturday, that they arrested 30 people in the center of the British capital and the vicinity of Wembley Stadium in the early hours of this morning, after the end of the England-Scotland match in the European Football Championship 2020. Thousands of Scotland fans traveled south to London despite torrential rain in the capital and many of them not getting tickets to attend the match. The police said that the majority of the fans behaved well and did not cause any problems inside the stadium, but a few of them caused some trouble in a number of areas of the city, according to “Reuters”. Most of the arrests took place in central London, and the main reason for this was a disorder, while five people were arrested near Wembley. The London police had issued an order to break up gatherings in central London before the match, which ended in a 0-0 draw. Police put in place measures to “prevent rioting and harassment” after a large number of fans traveled to the capital despite calls from London Mayor Sadiq Khan and several politicians for fans without match tickets not to travel. Dispersal of assemblies orders give police additional powers to disperse groups of two or more people if they feel their behavior is causing inconvenience or inconvenience.
