Football fans partied through the night after England beat Ukraine in the quarter-final Euros match.

After England scored four goals against Ukraine, there was a jubilant atmosphere across the country as parties erupted.

Speaking to the BBC, one fan said: “We’ve come from Munich, it’s like a ten hour drive but it was well, well worth it.”

Another added: “Couldn’t have wished for better, it’s coming home!”

England fans clashed with police in London. According to The Mirror, a line of police officers tried to disperse fans from Leicester Square while one supporter was seen letting off a flare in Piccadilly Circus.

Meanwhile, the Metro reports that in Trafalgar Square, fans got up on the tables and repeatedly threw beer over each other despite pleas from security and threats from organisers that they would cut the feed to the match if they did not sit down.

Here is a taste of the action, as it happened:
