Three people have been arrested after Italian football fans were attacked in Bedford last night.
Bedfordshire Police were forced to close the High Street and the Embankment after disorder broke out following England’s defeat in the Euro Championship quarter final match against Italy.
Around 1200 England fans watched the game in the High Street pubs. Approximately 150 supporters then broke away and headed for The Embankment where Italian fans had been watching the match.
The group caused damage to a number of vehicles and one person was assaulted, although not seriously.
Three people were arrested.
Officers are reviewing CCTV to try and identify those responsible.
