Hooligans to be booted out
England fans: clashed with Tunisians on the beach
Tension remains high in the city following England's two-nil victory over Tunisia this afternoon.
Trouble occurred both outside the stadium before the game and on the beach where fans watched the match on a giant screen.
Up to 15 fans who arrested on Sunday could become the first to receive French fast track sentencing.
As captain Alan Shearer scored England's first goal of the tournament, fighting again erupted on a beach near the city.
Fans threw bottles at each other and ripped out seats from a stand in a repeat of the scenes of Sunday night.
Police fired tear gas to keep the English and Tunisian supporters apart.
Mass expulsions possible
Earlier, on their way to the match, some England supporters on one side of a wide tree-lined road charged at Tunisian fans throwing bottles.
Some of the first fans arrested will appear in court as part of the fast track system of justice threatened by French officials before the tournament began.
Mass expulsions may also be used as an emergency measure meaning fans could be flown home.
Extra security measures
The authorities in Marseille had ordered extra security measures, including a ban on alcohol sales after the match and the early closure of bars.
The measures follow a night of violence in which almost 50 people were arrested, the majority of them English, and 30 were injured.
Blair: 'No excuses'
The England fans involved were swiftly condemned by the UK Government and football authorities.
He added: "It may be a small number of fans, there may be other fans that have been involved, but that is no excuse, there aren't any excuses for it. We have to put a stop to it.
"These people have the absolute condemnation of everyone in the country."
Sports Minister Tony Banks said "drunken, brain-dead louts" among England supporters and a "moronic minority" were ruining the country's reputation abroad.
