Reports have emerged, stating that two fans ended up getting stabbed in a pub brawl and a man was hit by a police car after the Euros final.
Two males were taken to hospital with stab wounds after a large fight broke out outside a pub in Derby on Sunday night.
Police were called to the Kingsway Hotel, in Mackworth, at around 11pm on the 11th of July – moments after England‘s penalty shootout defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
Several police cars and vans rushed to the scene and could be seen parked up near the pub on Brackensdale Avenue and Humbleton Drive at around 11:30pm.
Officers say two men suffered stab wounds during the large disorder, and were taken to hospital for treatment for injuries that are thankfully believed not to be life-threatening or life-changing.
A spokesman for Derbyshire police said: “Officers were called to reports of a large disorder at 11pm at the Kingsway Hotel, Brackensdale Avenue, Mackworth, yesterday (July 11).
“Reports from those at the scene state that a fight between a large number of people broke out outside the pub and two men received stab wounds during the disorder.
“They were both taken to hospital where they received treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening or changing.
“The investigation into the incident is in its early stages and officers are keen to speak to anyone with information or footage of the incident.”
Anyone who can help with enquiries is asked to contact Derbyshire police by calling 101, quoting reference 21*387852 in any correspondence.

Meanwhile, a male was hit by a slow-moving police car as officers broke up a fight near a nightclub also coming after the game.
Police and an air ambulance were called to the fight at Pier Gardens in Gorleston with the culprits blocking the road at around 11pm on Sunday.
The punch-up saw people bizarrely taking to attacking a police car, with one man requiring hospital treatment after being hit by the vehicle.
The East Anglian Air Ambulance was called to the scene as a precaution and the man was taken to hospital for treatment after suffering bruising in the impact – but police were able to break up the fight without the need for any arrests.
New footage coming from another incident in England shows the moment that a crowd in Watford town centre began to attack police vehicles.

Earlier in the day the atmosphere was very relaxed, however after a night of drinking and watching England losing on penalties, multiple small fights broke out in the area, and as crowds got larger, the police became a target.
At around 11.15pm, a police vehicle was kicked by crowds who later fled the scene. Scuffles also broke out with officers before fans began to disperse.
During the fight, many people booed police and began to swear as they then decided to chuck items in the air.
At least two police vans were seen rushing into Watford from other areas of Hertfordshire to support officers.
Chief Inspector David Partridge, who led the constabulary’s policing response to Euro 2020, said: “As per previous fixtures throughout the tournament, there was a substantial policing operation in place across Hertfordshire for last night’s Euro 2020 final and we worked closely with our partners and licensed premises to ensure everyone enjoyed the game safely.
“It was very busy compared with the previous England fixture and while the majority of fans acted in a responsible manner, sadly there were a few people who let the side down. We had 30 reported incidents throughout the evening, with five arrests.”
The constabulary estimates that 400 people were at the town centre after the match, with other smaller scale fights and violent actions breaking out (30 in total), resulting in a woman taken to hospital after being hit by flying glass, and a man knocked unconscious during an altercation.
He continued: “While we fully understand the disappointment that many people will have felt, there is absolutely no excuse for this kind of behaviour. Follow up enquiries are being conducted at this time and those involved will be dealt with accordingly.”
