In further disturbing scenes, a group of fans shouting "Have it" occupied a roadside brasserie called the Red Eagle which appeared to be well alight.

Footage showed some supporters lobbing bottles and chairs from the venue - some simply striking the canopy above them - while a fire raged in the building. Police could be seen gathered a short distance away.

This latest incident follows a day of violence which folowed on from incidents the night before.

Today there have been repeated clashes between gangs of fans and police and another fan was set upon by a group and thrown into the sea.
