Mob launch attack on restaurant

A restaurant favoured by Arsenal football fans has said to have been attacked by rival Italian supporters before this evening's Champions League clash.

Piebury Corner near the Emirates Stadium in north London has had to close after dozens of thugs tore through the building smashing windows, breaking chairs and swinging belts.

Witness Emily Gould, who works at the eatery, said around 50 customers were inside the premises, on Holloway Road, when a 30-strong mob of rival supporters stormed the building prior to kick-off.

I think they were Italian men with Napoli colours and scarves tied around their faces.

They were shouting something in Italian, chanting and causing trouble down the street.

Then then came in to the shop. I was terrified. They started swinging belts around.

The customers were very frightened.
