A video has emerged on social media of Millwall and Everton ‘fans’ having a scrap prior to their side’s FA Cup Fourth Round fixture this evening.
The footage shows the two groups in a mass brawl and look to be near the ground when it happened. The fighting sprawled out onto the road before more police and horses arrive to disperse the crowd.
Some officers are seen casually standing beside the hooligans whilst holding up a camera filming them all as they continued to punch and kick.
