Footage emerged on Friday night of some England fans brawling with French locals and Russian-speakers, throwing missiles and flares at police and throwing chairs out of cafes. One cafe was set on fire.

But other footage on social media has shown a group identified by two England fans as "Marseille Ultras" launching an unprovoked attack on fans sitting and drinking in bars in the city.

English men were later heard singing songs about the IRA and German bombers being shot down as events descended into clashes with police outside the Queen Victoria pub in the Old Port district of the city.

Labour MP Burnham said on Twitter: "As ever, the vast majority are let down by a minority.

"When you think of the terror threat and everything the French are dealing with, it makes behaviour of these England 'fans' even more embarrassing."

The disorder comes after one England fan and another local were arrested on Thursday night following clashes between English men and locals outside a McDonald's.

Mark Roberts, head of soccer policing in Britain, said England fans had been in the city "without issue" on Thursday until a group of locals approached a bar of England fans.

"At around midnight, there was a short confrontation where a group of approximately 70 local youths approached a pub where England fans had congregated," he said.
