England fans were involved in clashes with Marseille hooligans in the southern French city shortly before midnight on Thursday.

The clashes took place outside an Irish pub in the Old Port district of the city, where England will play their opening Euro 2016 match against Russia on Saturday.

Cops broke up the warring fans with tear gas and restored calm to the area at about 02:30 local time.

Two fans were arrested. One of them was an Englishman and the other a Frenchman.
