French football hooligan who attacked Everton fans is jailed.

A French football hooligan who was among those who attacked Everton fans has been jailed.

Up to 100 louts descended on Blues supporters in Lille on Wednesday night beating them and attacking them with metal chairs.

A suspect - known only as Tomasz S - was arrested on Thursday after being recognised by police.

The 30-year-old appeared in court on Friday where he admitted punching an Everton fan but claimed he acted in self-defence.

However, a judge rejected that assertion and jailed him immediately for eight months.
