Fourth Yorkshire England fan jailed after Marseille Euro 2016 violence

A fourth England fan from Yorkshire has been jailed and banned from France following violence over the weekend.

Widespread trouble hit Marseille ahead of England's Euro 2016 opener. There was further violence inside the Stade Velodrome after the two teams drew.

One fan has been left with severe head injuries and Uefa has threatened to ban England and Russia if there is any repeat.

Steven Cornell, 28, from Huddersfield has been jailed for two months and given a two-year ban from France after appearing in court in Marseille charged in connection with violence at the weekend.

Paul Jackson, 21, from Halifax, received one month in jail and a two-year ban after he threw bottles at police and supporters on Saturday.

Alexander Booth and Ian Hepworth were the first fans to be dealt with following the disorder.

Booth, 20, from Huddersfield, was jailed for two months for throwing a bottle at police and banned from France for two years.

Hepworth, 41, a psychiatric nurse from Sheffield, was given a three month sentence for the same offence and the same ban.

Reacting to the sentence, Booth's father Chris, who was later seen in tears, said "I'll fight it" and "miscarriage".

ITV sign deal for England qualifiers

ITV has won the right to show all England's matches at home and away for the Euro 2016 and 2018 World Cup qualifying competitions. ITV has held the rights for home matches since 2008 but has now agreed a deal with UEFA for the away games too.

"Bringing viewers exclusive live coverage of each key England international match is hugely important to ITV, and means football fans will be able to watch for free England's progress both at home and abroad as they attempt to qualify for the final stages of these tournaments."
