England fans appear to throw coins at begging kids in Lille

Well this is pretty shameful.

Video footage has emerged of England fans in Lille goading begging kids and throwing coins at them.

Hours after footage showed English and Welsh fans joining forces to repel a Russian attack in the French city, while this new footage isn’t unadulterated violence it still makes for grim viewing.

Many England fans are staying in Lille ahead of their Thursday afternoon clash with Wales in nearby Lens.

But while the actions of a few England fans may be pretty appalling, the video was posted by a seemingly pro-Russian, anti-British Twitter account, whose timeline reads like a one-man crusade against the British nations.




Seems the battle is being fought both on the streets and online, and will continue for some days to come.

This tournament’s been pretty grim at times.
