Violent scenes as West Ham and Rapid Vienna fans clash at the London Stadium
The Metro says there were nasty scenes in the stands at the London Stadium as West Ham and Rapid Vienna fans clashed during the Europa League clash on Thursday night.
West Ham took the lead through Declan Rice in the 28th minute and the goal sparked violence among supporters in a corner of the ground.
The Sun reports that a number of the Rapid Vienna fans tried to storm a section of the home fans after Rice’s goal, jumping barriers to do so.
Stewards and then police held off the attack from the away fans and order was restored, avoiding what could have been a much worse situation.
