Suffolk police say there were ‘no significant incidents’ following last night’s World Cup semi-final.

Despite bars and pubs being packed to the rafters with expectant England fans, it appears most were on their best behaviour.

This morning, a police spokesman said although they had a busier weekday night than usual, there were no reports of major disruption.

He said: “It was busier than normal but we had not reports of significant incidents.”

Police have previously praised fans for their good behaviour.

Speaking yesterday, Chief Inspector Matt Rose said: “Up to now we have had no reports of serious disorder following England’s games and we thank everyone who has followed the matches so far for their sensible behaviour.

“People have enjoyed the football passionately with great enthusiasm but also respectfully as well.”
