Police are investigating a large-scale fight in Hawkstone Road on Saturday afternoon apparently involving Millwall and Everton fans ahead of a match at the New Den.

The Met says that at around 4.42pm officers became aware of a large group of males fighting in the Hawkstone Road area.

One male aged in his twenties was discovered suffering from a slash wound to the face. He was taken by ambulance to a south London hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Officers worked to separate the groups with support from the Mounted Branch.

At this early stage, there have been no arrests.

Detective Inspector Darren Young, of the South Central Command Unit, said: “The behaviour of those involved in this incident is nothing short of disgraceful and those involved can be certain we will be working to identify them.

“We are aware of the video circulating online, which has quite rightly elicited shock and disgust. We are looking at it and urge anyone with information that could assist police to call 101 referring CAD 5117/26 Jan.”
