Wembley chaos with broken fence and smashed gates

The full shocking horror of what happened on the night of the European Championship final is laid bare in this report.

It was a miracle no-one was killed that day.

I have never seen such horrific scenes at a football match.

It was sheer carnage before and during the game.

I watched at Gate F and Gate G before the game and I saw several dozen drunken “fans” storm the turnstiles.

A steward was threatened with a knife, a woman fan seriously sexually assaulted.

The young inexperienced steward told me: “The man showed me the knife and said ‘you ARE going to let me in’.

“What was I going to do? I earn £8.90 an hour – I’m not getting stabbed for that.”

One woman stopped me to say she had been subjected to a very serious sexual assault in the crush outside as a man threatened her and tailgated her to get through the turnstiles.

And I will never forget the horrendous wails of a weeping boy as his father desperately tried to console him.

Everyone was at fault. The police, UEFA, the FA, Wembley.

This must never be allowed to happen again.
