UK police warn World Cup revellers after ‘shocking behaviour’ at weekend

London: (Reuters) – Britain’s police chiefs warned the British public on Monday not to repeat the “shocking behaviour” which followed England’s victory over Sweden on Saturday at the soccer World Cup in Russia.

One woman lifted up her top to show the crowd her bra on the ambulance after England ‘s quarter final victory over Sweden on Saturday.

A statement from the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) said its 44 forces across England and Wales recorded 387 incidents and 70 arrests over the weekend for mostly alcohol-related disorder after England won their quarter final match.

In advance of England’s semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday, NPCC Lead for Football Policing Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts warned supporters: “We want people to celebrate and enjoy themselves but not at the expense of law abiding fans and emergency services’ resources.”
