Rebekah Vardy, the new wife of England striker Jamie Vardy from Sheffield, claims she was was tear-gassed by French police as she travelled to England's match against Russia last night.
Earlier she had tweeted a picture of herself smiling with a pint of beer, saying she was "in the carnage amongst the England fans".
But hours later she described the behaviour of officers as 'horrific' and claimed that English supporters were caged in 'like animals' as they tried to make their way into Stade Vélodrome in Marseille.
When MailOnline editor at large Piers Morgan called her tweets a 'shocking claim', she replied: 'Mr Morgan.....a fact! They closed the gates so the fans couldn't get through then tear gassed us!'
Vardy did not make it onto the pitch in the Group B opener against Russia, with the game ending one all.
That has to be up there with the worst experience EVER at an away game! Teargassed for no reason, caged and treated like animals! Shocking!
I witnessed this with my own eyes! I can't comment on things I didn't see but what I got caught up in was horrific and uncalled for!
And this happened before the game even kicked off!
Mr Morgan.....a fact! They closed the gates so the fans couldn't get through then tear gassed us! https://t.co/DByD2tuQUL
