Scotland fans flooded the streets of London for the Euro 2020 game against England at Wembley.

Thousands of fans arrived in the capital ahead of the game in eager anticipation - and rain did not stop them from enjoying a good time.

However, there were concerns that Covid-19 restrictions, such as social distancing, were not being observed.

This was the first time the two teams have played each other since the qualifying stages of the World Cup in 2017.

The two mens' teams last faced each other at a major tournament in Euro 1996.

The game ended 0-0, with Scotland impressing and England disappointing. Fans poured out of Wembley at full time, and public figures on both sides of the border have reacted to the Wembley clash.

Fans gathered in Leicester Square after the match. As of 10:30pm, 18 people in total had been arrested.
