FA will pursue 'criminal charges' against Millwall fans

The Football Association has said today's scenes of violence involving Millwall fans at the FA Cup semi-final are "unacceptable":

The Metropolitan Police and the FA are this evening investigating scenes of sporadic violence and disorder in the Millwall FC end at today's FA Cup semi-final.

The FA and Wembley Stadium will work with police and representatives of Millwall FC to review all events.

We will look to ensure those involved are identified and we would call for criminal charges and a football banning order to be brought against them.

The FA deplores the scenes which have taken place, which are unacceptable. Everything will be done to take action against those involved.

– Alex Horne, general secretary of the FA
