England fan stabbed
Most English fans were boisterous but good-humoured
An English fan is in a serious condition in a Toulouse hospital after being stabbed in clashes following Romania's 2-1 World Cup defeat of England.
Three other people suffered slight injuries and police detained 12 others in isolated incidents after the match in Toulouse. Two vehicles were damaged and two shop windows smashed, police said.
All but one of the youths held were French, several of them armed with baseball bats. The other was English.
Shortly before the game started, 30-year-old journalist Andrew Woodcock, from the UK news agency Press Association, had his collar-bone broken when a group of England fans attacked him.
Although England fans in Toulouse generally behaved themselves there was trouble after the match back at home, and in Majorca.
A policeman in Norwich was injured after trouble broke out in a pub while riot squads broke up fighting in Bedford town centre after the match.
There were violent scenes in the small town after England's World Cup victory over Tunisia, and during Euro 96 and the 1990 World Cup."
Police charged 16 people with public order offences. They were bailed to appear before Bedford magistrates on Wednesday. Eight men remain in custody.
Meanwhile, police in Majorca had to disperse around 200 Englishmen who began vandalising cars shortly after the match.
One man was arrested after a driver pressed charges against him for damaging his car.
