Saturday Afternoon Riots

I am not a football fan, but live very close to the football ground in our town. Last month there was a big game and the two teams just did not get on. There was a big fight between the fans at a pub around the corner before the game and the Police were expecting more trouble afterwards. Hearing there was going to be trouble in our street I charged up my video camera and also moved my car to a safer location.

From about 16.45 to 18.00 there was chaos at the bottom of our road, with fans fighting, Police charging, dogs barking and Police cars arriving. Most of the actual fighting happened around the corner, but I videoed a lot from the safety of our house.

I have edited a 10min movie together of the 'highlights'. Football Violence.wmv (39.4mb)
