England fans have been involved in violent clashes with police in Prague, with several supporters arrested.

Thousands travelled to watch England take on the Czech Republic in a Euro 2020 qualifier, a game they ultimately lost, but there were ugly scenes ahead of kick-off on Friday evening.

Police said 14 foreigners were among 31 people arrested after the pre-match violence, which left one England fan with head injuries that needed treatment.

Some supporters were seen throwing bottles at officers, who returned fire with stun grenades.
